SOURCE: no power on front passenger door
Check the connections between the door and the body, not the panel on the door. If a wire was pinched between the door and body that could be the problem. There should be a boot between door and body, peal that back and look for damaged or grounded wires. Repair as necessary.

Cell phone chargers commonly blow the fuses at the power points. It seems that our charger adaptors do not match the socket properly, and the positive part of the charger hits the negative of the socket, resulting in a blown fuse. If you have a charger, and it works, leave it in the socket. Don't take it with you. Repeated insertions of the adaptor to the socket magnifies this issue.

SOURCE: 20036 hyundai cigarette lighter
There's one under the hood, on the right side... labeled Fuse Box and then there's another on the left side of the steering wheel, near the signals, behind the little fold out compartment (which you have to take out to get at the fuses)

Most likely you have something metallic that entered/fell inside one of the cigarette lighters.
I once found a dime inside a cigarette lighter which my children assured me was placed there by a shadowy personage named "Notme". Go figure.
While the fuse is REMOVED, look inside each lighter with a flashlight and remove the foreign material.
If you find nothing inside the lighters, disconnect them all from the electrical system by removing the single wire attached to the rear of the lighters. Replace the fuse.
Alternately, you can disconnect them one at a time, replacing the fuse after each one. You may need a few fuses for this.
If the fuse blows after ALL the lighters are disconnected, you have a wiring short circuit which is best diagnosed by a professional.
If the fuse does not blow, begin reconnecting the lighters until you see a spark, or the fuse blows again. This is the faulty lighter, replace it and your problem is solved.
Note: You cannot get shocked or electrocuted by your car's 12 Volt system but you can be burned by heavy sparking. You can reduce the risk of heavy sparking by using a lower-rated fuse during the testing. Wear saftey goggles and latex gloves for safety.
