Make sure the fuse is the right size. If it is then your best bet is to replace the actual lighter as it's probably the culprit. You could also go one size up in fuses because if there is a short circuit in the lighter it will blow that fuse just as fast. I had the same problem once and it turned out to be the light in the ashtray that had the short. Usually it's the lighter itself.
With the ignition off try prying the tabs closed on the inside of the cig lighter. Sometimes they get spread apart to far when using auxillary chargers. Make sure the ignition is off or you will short to ground and pop the fuse for sure. If that doesn't work and the fuse is good then you'll need to replace the cig lighter as a complete assembly.
I was searching for this fuse. All the above fuses mentioned were not popped on my vehicle and the 12v power was the only thing not working. Look under the hood by the latch. There is another fuse box by the hood latch. Open that and it will be #16 & #18 one is your 12v power, the other is cig lighter. Both of mine were popped. Replaced those and my problem was fixed.
On my 79 Tacoma the cig fuse, and several others, are on a small panel directly behind the pull-out change drawer, in front of my left knee. Give the flip-out drawer a slight tug, and it pops out to reveal the fuses. The cig fuse is top row, second in from the right, 15amp. You may need to get the fuse puller thingey from the big fuse box under the hood.
06 Solara fuse box under driver side dash, left of brake pedal. Pop fuse cover off. CIG is for cigar lighter. 15A rating. Get the fuse puller from the big fuse box under the car's hood, it is white plastic. Pull out bad 15A blue fuse, replace with new one. For a quick fix, use 15A spare from the big fuse box. Replace asap.
