A garage will have a GFCI outlet. If this is what you are referring to then the refrigerator is either overloading the circuit or there is a ground fault. Sometimes equipment with motors, like a refrigerator, will cause a GFCI to trip. There may be a real problem in refrigerator causing the ground fault, or it may be an older GFCI that needs to be replaced.

Below the speedometer there are 2 reset buttons. The one that sticks out resets the odometer. The other one is under a little rubber plug. (If the plug isn't lost) Pry out the plug and push in the reset button. The button can be pushed through the plug, but sometimes the plug ends up inside the cluster. I just take out the plug and throw it away.
