USB Charging Port

Has anyone had to change or fix the USB charging port on their Kia Sorento? My wife has a 2014 Kia Sorento SXL and the USB charging port that is located below the radio has quit working. I have checked the fuse and it is not blown. I was wondering if anyone has had this issue and replaced theirs. I have looked on Rock Auto and they did not have the part the last time that I checked. I have also reached out to several junk yards and have not found another 2014 Kia Sorento I was hoping to find someone with first hand experience before I try to take the dash apart to further investigate. Thanks

Are you able to play music through the USB port? In other words, is it only the charging function that is inoperative, or has the entire port failed?

The entire part isn’t working. So if I plugged a charging cable to it, nothing happens.

The USB port is wired to the audio head unit, so the problem could be at either end.

charging

Get one of these high current voltmeter combo's I have one in every vehiclle since the not battery indication is built in and high current charge ability is need by all phones made in the last 3-4 years. 500mA max of USB 2.0 is not enough.
