Re: location of lighter fuse
Check in your owners manual for the location of the fuse you are looking for if you can...I believe the fuse box is close to the doorjam on the driver side, visible when you have the door open. There may be a schematic on the plastice panel you open to get to the fuses explaining the locations, but the owners manual will be much more detailed. Good luck

The cigarette lighter fuse located in the (Fascia 1) fuse box, you reach it when you open the driver door, is on the side of the dash board, covered with a plastic cover.
fuse number 42, 20 amp fuse
Tire compressor probably draws too much current for the socket. Are you sure it is a cigarette lighter socket? Some sockets are just to provide accessories 12v. Did a cigarette lighter come with this socket? True cigarette lighter sockets are generally fused at 25 or 30 Amps
Fuse is located under the spare tire well and is in the fuse panel and is an 20 amp fuse that is slightly misaligned on the middle row of the box. This will fix cigarette lighter in ash tray in lower middle cluster of radio and a/c.
You mean there seems to be no power to the vehicle's lighter unit outlet.
This lighter unit outlet is normally wired through its own fuse so check the fuse panel in the car for a blown fuse. If blown it must be replaced with a fuse of the correct amperage. The owner's manual will show you where the fuse is located.
Before you check the fuse just check the cigarette lighter outlet with another plug-in device if you have one such as a portable 12 volt tire compressor or a 12 volt plug-in auxiliary light. It could be that if you are using a charger from the outlet, the charger plug or wiring may be faulty rather than the car's power outlet itself. (These outlets don't usually give trouble unless the wiring has been messed with or the outlet itself has been damaged or abused).
If no device works from the lighter power outlet check the fuse as it may be blown.
On some vehicles the cigarette lighter fuse is attached to the cigarette lighter assembly itself. Check if you can gently prise the cigarette lighter assembly out of its location in the dashboard, or remove any panel that may allow access to the rear of the cigarette lighter and look for the fuse (it may be an in-line one in the power lead to the cigarette lighter or it may be physically attached to the cigarette lighter itself). Failing that, the fusebox is normally under the dashboard on the driver side, but some fuseboxes can be found under the dashboard on the passenger side. There should be a diagram under the fusebox cover that shows what circuits each fuse protects. If a fuse has blown ensure that another of the same type and value is used to replace it.
Below is an image showing that it's fuse #6 and it's a 30 amp fuse. This fuse also powers the chime, fuel system, dome lamps, clock/radio, decklid release. If any of these components are still working, then a fuse isn't the problem with the cigarette lighter. Best of luck.
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.
