No power in cigarette or any 12v outlet sockets

Hello all, Iíve just purchased myself a 2006 w164 ml320. Iím baffled but I donít seem to have any power at all in the cigarette socket nor any other outlet in the car.
Iíve checked all the relevant fuses in the boot fuse panel but all were ok and replaced them for good measures but still nothing.... any ideas as iím stumped

With the key on, check both contacts at fuses 44, 45 & 46 in the cargo area fuse box with a test light or DVOM .

The rear wiper does work however it stops half way on songle wipe and then works fine when used with a spray . but bottomed that out to a motor issue. So I guess power is getting to this

Listen London, I want to help you but you are not helping me.

I have asked twice to post your vin# and you have ignored both requests.

Before I post instructions, have you checked both contacts at fuses 44, 45 & 46, with a test light?

Locate the Rear SAM unit in the cargo area and at conn. "G", find wire #21 BLUE/WHITE.

With the eng. running, probe the contact at the wire and see if the test light illuminates.

Ignore my last the sam just seems to be located a different way around!
Mom tested slot 21 blue and white wire and no power here too. I tested other wires within the same connector box and they had power

Did you just buy this truck, if not, you must have done something to one of the interior sockets to cause this problem?
