Your lighter should be on a twenty amp, assy fuse I believe. Have you checked to make sure you have no voltage at your lighter, if so it is the fuse. all assy on every car have fuses

Go to this website and pick owner guide on left task bar. Input vehicle info then get the owners manual.Your fuse panel info starts on page 120.
To replace lighter just reach around behind it and unhook connectors. The stick something in the socket(I usually use 2 fingers) and twist it counter clockwise. the center will screw out of the sleeve.

i had the same problem. the fuse box you need is located under the hood. my fuse was blue. if you take your car to autozone, they will check all your fuses for free and replace the correct fuse. you have to pay for you fuse though. its like $5. if it ends up not being a fuse, check to see if your lighter itself is worn out. ask the guys at autozone for there advice if the replacign the bad fuse doesn't work.

Your thought that the end of something fell into the lighter fried something is likely true. I can't imagine that the wire could be fried and the fuse is still good. check to see if the fuse you checked was the right one. If it was and it is good, a wire on the back of the receptacle may have come lose. The end that fell into the receptacle, did it get hot or damaged? That could be a clue as to if the receptacle was shorted when the end fell into it or if not, then look for a lose connection.

I have a feeling that you check and changed the wrong fuse. The cigarette lighter is on a totally different circuit and that's why I think that, Not sure if you have a blown fuse for the radio but I can tell you that the fuse for the lighter is in the number 16 position and the radio is in the number 11 position (diagram of layout below). I hope this helps you and good luck.
