Isn't there a small sub-fuse panel behind the removable cover on the driver's side of the dash that is accessible when drivers door is open?

One of the members here, PGamboa, posted a youtube video about swapping out the center console. In the video, he shows and explains in pretty good detail the wiring configuration of the outlets... Maybe this would help you poke around the wires and figure something out. 

 

Good luck!

If fuse is good check for continuity from fuse to hot side of outlet.  If that is good check the chassis ground to the outlet.  That is the problem with electrical problems,  no puddle to back to the source and everything is small

Your best bet would be to locate the wiring diagram for your truck.  There is a site that has wiring diagrams as well as service manuals, but I cannot remember the name of the site.   Hopefully someone reading this thread will be able to recall the site name.

Have you looked in the owners manual to see if they have the fuse panel listed with a table giving what circuits are connected to what fuses?  Generally fuses protect more than just a single circuit, for example one fuse may protect the horn and brake lights. 

Since all three outlets are dead, the issue will be before the wiring splits off to the three outlets.  

Are you testing fuses with a test light, or by sight?  Mini fuses have the legs of the fuses exposed on the plastic end of the fuse when installed.  A test light probe can touch either leg to verify power.  Test both sides of all fuses with key on.

      My 2016 Suburban’s auxiliary ports and features (USBs, wireless charging pad, 12V) blink off briefly when the doors are shut while cranked. This can cause my aftermarket headrest monitors to power off and back on if I get out of a cranked car to pump gas, hand a kid something in the back seat, run into gas station or restaurant, etc. This is extremely frustrating on road trips, making a pit stop and having to turn the TVs back on, DVD player back on, etc. 
       
      Sometimes if the key fob is left in the car it won’t blink off, but not always. Every time this happens I hear a click, like a light blinking, behind the dash as the door is closed. What is happening back there, triggered by the door closing, that’s causing a sudden loss of power to so many auxiliary items? 
       
      Attached video shows what happens to a cranked car when the door is closed with fob outside the car. I have a Blu-ray player, wired into a wire in the dash labeled for the BCM, but several other items have the same reaction to shutting the door while cranked with fob outside. 
       
      Much thanks.

      Hey guys and gals I was hoping y’all could answer a question of mine. I currently own a 2019 Silverado trail boss with the 5.3 and 6 speed transmission. A mechanic told me the transmission is a ticking time bomb if I do any performance mods. Such as a cam swap and tune. So I explained my plan for the future. Cold air intake, flow master exhaust, headers, tune and cam swap. He said if I do any of the big changes to the engine the tranny may go out. The reason why is because the stock transmission was only made to handle the stock HP and TQ. Have any of y’all had an issue like this after some big performance mods?

      This weekend someone slammed my passenger door probably to hard in my opinion. Not sure if this is the cause of the problem but the issue did start soon after. The Window and mirror lost power first intermittently, now completely. I checked the fuse and also didn’t see anything obvious as far as wires being loose or broken from the harness. Any suggestions or recommendations for a fix would be greatly appreciated.

      I have a 2005 Silverado with the Bose system in it with no XM radio. I am trying to wire in an AUX cable to the radio without having to use a FM bypass module. Is there anywhere I could splice into to wire the input in? Every video I have watched on it so far shows splicing into the XM transmitter. I am trying to make it look as factory as possible on the console so I do not want to just replace the head unit. Any advice would be much appreciated. Thank y'all.
