In my garage I have four outlets, two on each side wall and the breaker panel on the inside wall. The ones furthest away from the panel both went dead a couple days ago with nothing that I could find as the culprit. When I check the wires hooked up to the outlets themselves, I get a reading of zero. The outlets that are between each of those and the breaker, which they are fed from, still work just fine though. Any help with this would be appreciated.
I am rather new to doing work myself, so if I'm not describing what's happening in an effective way, please don't hesitate to ask me for clarification.
EDIT: So I took off the covers of the outlets I thought fed into them based on what I saw in my attic, and it doesn't look like they lead into the dead outlets. I got back up into my attack and am now confused as to where all these wires are going. I think, until I take down all the plywood in my garage I'm at a standstill. Since that was already on my to-do list, I'll probably work on that tomorrow. Also, I just realized there is an outlet on the outside of the house that isn't working. I have a theory that it's the first in the line of the three that are out which may be the culprit of it all. Going to investigate it tomorrow morning and will edit my post then.
