using a test light check for power and ground for the lighter socket. if this is good then then you know the fuse is good. this indicates that you need to replace the cigarette lighter element. the part that gets hot when you want to light a cigarette.
the cigarette lighter fuse is usually the radio,clock ,instrument panel illumination fuse as well .If these other items are working ok i'd have to say the cigarrette lighter heat element is burned out or there is a loose /disconnected wire to the cigarette lighter socket
interior fuse box lower dash drivers side the lid will give the fuse location etc . the rear 'lighter socket ' is usually for 12v auxillary input lead ie tyre compressor , unless it had a lighter in it, don't use this as a lighter socket as will blow fuse , the same may be for the front as most cars i've seen post 2008 dont have cigarette lighter's only 12v AUX sockets . check with your drivers handbook
RELAY FUSE UNDER THE HOOD ,TRY REPLACING THE WHOLE CIGARETTE SOCKET AND TRY THAT IT THA DONT WORK TRY BUYING A FUSEABLE LINK THATS CONNECTED TO THE STARTER THATS WHERE YOU GET YOUR CONNECTION FOR YOUR CIGARETTE LIGHTER
bye a LED test light and put one end on a good earth and use the other to probe the back of the fuses you should get power from both sides of the fuses if all fuses are good you will probably find the lighter socket is burnt out as this is fairly common
test the lighter socket itself by putting a everyday common voltage tester or "multi-meter"in it. place the positive wire on the tester to the center of the socket and the negative to the side of the socket. if no voltage reading, keep the positive where it is and move the negative probe on your tester to a new location that you "know" is a negative like a screw on the door jam area. ( find an unpainted surface"). if you get a reading now then you know the negative on the socket is not connected somewhere in the path. do the same with the positive..... good luck.
