Answers :

Most likely the fuse is blow. Either a 15 or 20 amp fuse.
\015\012Open the glove box and turn the 2 white tabs 90 degrees. then pull the fuse panel down. There is a white card stuck in the bottom of the fuse box that shows what fuse number is the one for the cigarette lighter. Locate this fuse, they are numbered on the fuse box. Then replace it.
