Part of 12v to dash electronics not working.

This probably should be under electronics or electrical but I did not see a field that really applied. A section of the dash in our 2005 Safari Cheetah that houses the radio, dash HVAC, and two 12v (cig. lighter style) outlets has stopped working. I have no 12v power at anything in section of the dash. Everything else on the dash area works. I have checked all the fuses is the compartment below the drivers window and in the house 12v system and all are good. I suspected perhaps a break in the ground but do not get a voltage reading even when going directly to the chassis for ground. Is it possible that every thing in this area (panel above center cup holders and draw) is tied to one 12v source/ fused line with an in line fuse? Any suggestions are appreciated.

Sounds more like a plug issue where one pin supplies power to the entire area. Do you have elec prints to see what the common denominator is.

Unfortunately I do no have a dash electrical schematic. If anyone has on for same or similar 2005 I would greatly appreciate a pdf or a post here.

There is an extensive collection of wiring diagrams in the "downloads" section of "Bill D's Monacoers"  for the 2007 Diplomat.  Another person posted that other years and brands are much the same.  I looked at the diagrams and saw references to the Cheetah brand.   The items you mentioned not working are on different circuits, as I read the diagrams.  Maybe something there would be of help.

I've got the same problem in my 2004 Lapalama 37 pst. Very frustrating!
