Hi yes there should be a cig/lighter or a blanking cap to fill hole if you want to put one in the wiring loom should still be there for it you just need a cigerette lighter complete and connect the wires push it in simple as that find the wires first if worse comes to worse and you cannot find it you can make your own as its only two wires one to an ignition live and one to ground yates210456

Cigarette lighter receptacle won't work

Not a Peugeot expert, but its possible the charger is not going in far enough to touch the center of the lighter receptacle. Does the lighter work with the lighter element ?
Sometimes debris collects in the bottom of the receptacle and blocks the contacts.

The cigarette lighter does not work on my 1997 Toyota Camry. Where is the fuse for the lighter?

it wil be located in the fuse box, the fuses should be listed on the box or inside the box and again in your owners manual. If you can not locate this way you will need to pull each fuse till you find the burnt fuse replacing with the same amperage fuse. Cigarette lighters can and do go bad, if you find no burnt fuses the lighter can be bad. This can be checked with any 12 volt plug accessory. Good luck.

No power to cigarette lighter/power outlet (front & rear)..

Replace the 15 amp ACC fuse that is in the fusebox under the dash. See if this eliminates your problem.
