Funny you should mention this! I had the same problem in Aug. First, there is another fuse for this circuit in the underhood fuse box - a 15A one. It will probably be blown. Try a new fuse there but it will probably blow again. The reason it will have blown is probably because the retaining nut at the back of the lighter has come off allowing the unit to short out. To fix; the complete lower dash has to be removed in order to re-install the lighter (which is a *****)!!! Then you can replace the fuse. I was in travel mode at the time so I had a dealer fix it for $77. ! Good luck.

its in the fuse box. but no year, stated, so impossible to be more clear
open glove box, extract the operators guide, see page called fuses.
lost?, then buy one.
or just look, see the fuse box
see the one marked CIG.?
on my 04 GV, its fuse marked CIGAR #39 , plain as day.
and runs my radio too, so if blown on my car, the radio dies.
try posting a year.
you could be lucky and the fuse blew, and it could be a burned wire, check the fuse panel and replace the fuse if blown, if it blows again you have to fix the wires, and possible the cigarette lighter if it got damaged
Sometime the computer in car will shut down a circuit when it sees a problem even if it only occure once. You can try to disconnect the battery for at least 2 min so all sys power off (some have capacitors that mantaine a charge for short time). If a battery disconnect does not clear problem you have go to dealer and have them to clear codes and reset you modules and your preferences
