Though Ive not (yet) been there myself, first thing Id do is to try and reach up under the dash to see if the cabling is attached and or get to it by removing the glove box?

I had the same issue and the connector on the back had come off.

Attached is a document to help you take apart part of the dash so you can get to it. You really only need to get the glove box out

i might have to check this out. i tried charging a little 12v power outlet led flashlight but it didnt work so i assumed it was the light that was bad. might have to try something else in it.

It's uber easy to take off the stuff in the PDF I posted .
(thanks go to Marlboro Mike for sending me that)

There is a connector on the back of the socket. If the fuses are good, that is the next thing to check.

Yeah this happened with my Sol, and it was the connector not being in place.

Of course, in my case it was self-inflicted. I took the dash out and didn't put the connector on properly when I put it back together

Actually this is very easy.

You don't have to take the dash off at all. First remove the support cable in the glove box. Next carefully pull both sides of the glove box inward. This will allow the box to drop down enough to get at the outlet. Easy Peasy.

Same problem, remove glove box door and press the down on the wire. There are two hinge pins on the bottom of the door, push these toward the middle and remove them. To remove the elastic band push down on the clip. The glove box will slide up and toward you. No push of the side needed.

Tips like these are why I really appreciate this forum. My aux outlet had stopped working after having my radio replaced under warranty. Popped the glove compartment like y'all suggested, and found out they had simply forgotten to plug it back in. Y'all rock!

(Oh, and yes I'm new around these parts, and a relatively new Sky owner... Pics in the appropriate thread soon!)
