I used a 12 volt tyre inflator from one of the power sockets, the tyre got to 29psi, the inflator started making a funny noise then went off, now the socket doesn't work, I tried it on another socket and the same happened, I have checked the fuses and they look ok, what else could it have done to cause this?

You sure it's not the inflator? There might be a fuse inside the plug on the inflator end.

Yeah, I tried other devices, satnav, phone charger, nothing works

The fact that you were using something that could place a high load on the circuit AND that both power sockets are not working suggests to me that there is a blown fuse for the power sockets.
Looking at a wiring diagram, it looks like the fuse is a 20A fuse located in a fuse box (in the engine compartment) with the accessory relay. There should also be two other, 10A fuses near it, one for the door mirrors and the other for multiple systems, including ADP, audio system, BCM and defogger.

Thanks but I removed all fuses one by one and put a tester on them, all the fuses are ok

But is there power at the fuse? If there is, you'll have to get a wiring diagram from the factory service manual and trace the power from the fuse to the socket.

I found a third fuse box under the bonnet, changed the 20 amp fuse, now all working, thanks for your time

Glad you figured it out!

I've also done each fuse and still do not have power. And also this happened using a tire inflater that plugged into the power outlet aka cigarette lighter.

This is the 3rd time this has happened. And previously all that ever happened was I replaced a fuse. After I check this time and saw no burnt fuse, I check all of them.

As far as I can figure what I need is a Power Socket Relay. But I cannot seem to find the part.

And well, they've located it in a doozie of a place too! I have no idea how I am suppose to get my hand in there. I might just bring it to the same guy I paid to put on my shocks & struts.

The schematic that shows what I think I need to replace is on page 1618 of the Nissan Pathfinder 2001 Workshop Manual PDF. The manual I found is linked here. https://manuals.co/workshop/nissan/pathfinder/nissan-pathfinder-2001-workshop-manual/5529487

Any ideas if this is the right relay that needs to be replaced? And if this is the right relay, where do I buy it? I cannot find it on Rock Auto.

Hi I was wondering if you figured out the issue with your power outlets? I have a similiar issue where all three of the ports in the front cab do not work (2 dash and 1 in center console)

Looking into my issue I find that there is an accessory relay that powers two power outlet fuses and two others, which provide power to the radio, mirrors I think and a whole list of other things. Those two other fuses have power and those items are working. The two power socket fuses do NOT have power presented to them from the fuse block. So I think my issue is internal to the fuse block.

I am trying to figure out how to get at the fuse block to remove it.
