Re: 1996 Neon: ligher does not work
First of all check all your fuses and if they are good then take the negative side off the battery and then remove the lighter itself to see if the wire is off on the back and then put the negative back on and use a 12 volt to see if you have power and if there is power in the wire the element may just be burned out you can stop by a salvage yard and get one cheap.

Did you make sure there is a wire going to the back of the lighter receptacle? Just stick a light probe in the middle of the lighter well, and see if it lights up. There is supposed to be battery voltage in the middle of the hole. Sometimes the those lighter elements, the part that you use to start your cigar, burn out. Those replacements are about $4.
Your post is just a tad bit confusing. In most cars these days they have a ciggarette lighter as well as a power port or two.
Is your cigarette light port and your power port, in your eyes, the same thing? If yes, and you've checked the fuse and "it appears to be fine" then I would say that you have a short in your wiring that for some reason isn't tripping the fuse. Unlikely though.
I believe in one car I worked on had two different fuses that went to the ciggarette ligher. Maybe just maybe you have a few different fuses running your ports and you checked some of the fuses but not all of them.
Most cars have fuse boxes in the following locations: Engine Bay, Glove Box, Drivers or passengers side kick panel, trunk.
The most likely spots to check for a fuse box is to the left of your legs while sitting in the drivers seat and underneath the hood.
