no power, means, what, cig lighter plug dead,?

if it is truely dead, the fuse is blown.
does head lights work, and engine run?
ok fuses that bad are bad, blown. (blown elements)
ok fuse that look GOOD, can in fact be bad, (tiny cracks.)
we never fail to test good looking fuses or go nuts for sure.
you can test fuse 3 ways.
1: DMM ohms, 0 ohms reading
2: voltmeter shows, 12v, on both sides of fuse, key on.
3: a fuse tester dealy bob at any autostore. (ill pass)
there are other ways, but are way too complex to type.
(ok a battery powered test light , yes, all auto stores sell them.
glow with a good fuse)
bingo?

Is the 9 volt a fuse


Where do you have a 9 volt? I'm assuming you mean the outlet that we used to call the cigaret lighter? If so, it's a 12 volt outlet. Its pretty common for this fuse to blow, I'd definitely check that first. Get a few fuses because it likely blew from a bad accessory you plugged into the outlet. Also, try a few different accessories and verify that it's not an issue with the one you're plugging into it. If you replace the fuse and it blows again then the problem is being caused by whatever you're plugging into it.

Dash lights and tail lights wort work


Check your fuses. Dash lights and tail lights are on the same fuse. Check the fuses electrically, just looking at them is not enough. Replace any blown or damaged fuses with fuses of the same rating, NEVER use a fuse of a higher rating. If the fuse blows again, you have a short circuit to ground. Check all the front and tail lamps and their wiring and don't forget the trailer connector if you have one fitted..

Cigaret lighter not working


I am not that familiar with peugeot's but. You can buy a test light for cheap or construct one if you have the parts. And most cars have a fuse box inside the car and another one outside under the hood.
At the least you can pull each fuse at a time and check if thier burnt out.
Also check to see if there's a foreign object (like a coin) in the cig lighter socket.
