2000 Lincoln Contental armrest power outlet not working.
Front (under dash) cigar lighter is working. Power outlet inside armrest is not working. IA child stuck a metal component in the outlet and shorted out the outlet. Is there a separate fuse for this outlet? If so, where is it located?

I think you meant power outlet port under front ashtray.
Manual doesn't show specifically that port but it should be either
your left knee area when you sit on driver's seat
Black plastic box under the hood near battery.
You can use test light to each fuse to find which fuse is blown.
That port is not controlled by ignition (port continued to have power 24-7, even you take key out)
Is this from the cigarette lighter or the aux power outlet?
There are 2 fuse panels in the '99 Durango. The one containing the Cigar Lighter fuse is on the drivers side of the dash with the door open. 15 amp (blue) fuse, 4th from the front on the bottom row.
Aux power outlet fuse is located in the fuse panel on the inside the cab but on the back side of the panel.
The fuse you are looking for might be in the fuse box under the hood. I think on or about page 203 of the owners manual it will show the locations of the fuse boxes. The one under the dash is a little tricky. Just figure out what by looking at the pattern of the fuse lay out. You are looking for a 15 amp(blue) fuse I believe.
After you fix that I would recomend using the power outlet. I believe there are 2. One just in front of the shifter and the other in the center armrest storage box.
According to the Haynes repair manual: "There is no fuse and relay box inside the passenger compartment. However, there are a number of fuses, relays and circuit breakers in various locations under the dash. The heated mirror circuits and the circuit for the lower instrument panel power outlet (in the floor console) are fused with self-resetting fuses that are only serviceable by an authorized dealer." However, in the fusebox under the hood (a.k.a Integrated Power Module) there is a fuse RDO/IP IGN which is the fuse for the radio. Check this fuse. Both the radio and the Cigar Lighter are fused through the IPM.
