Cigerette lighter and secondary power source is not working

I went to plug in my GPS in the secondary power source and when that did not work, I plugged it in the cig. lighter and that didn't work either.
I am leaving on a long trip in 2 days so I need to get this taken care of. Is this a fuse problem and if so where is the fuse box and what fuses do I need.

The fuse box is located under the driver side dash and the cig lighter fuse is in position 16 and the fuse amp rating is 20 it will be yellow in color. if you cant find # 16 position then pull all yellow fuses one by one to check.

I have a 2006 f150 6 cylinder i cant get emissons done because cigerette lighter dosent work which fuse is it

There is no fuse for the lighter.I would try replacing just the lighter itself. Also check to see if there is power to the receiver that you plug the lighter into. If you don't have a "stab light",you can get one at your local parts store.Clip the aligator clip to a known ground,then touch the center contact and the bulb should light up.

What can i do to fix my cigerette lighter. i changed the fuses and it still doesn't work.

You can check if it's the lighter or the lighter terminal fairly easy, It's most likely you have a car cell charger or something similar that works by plugging it to the cigarrete lighter terminal, check if it works, if it does your lighter is bad, those are fairly cheap and you can buy one on a dealer store or a good auto parts store. Good luck
