If the there are no blown fuses in your in-cab fuse box look under the hood for the fuse box there. I know that on a 1996 civic the fuse is under the hood (7.5) for the cigarette lighter, clock and radio.

Usually if it doesn't come back out, it is just the fuse. But occassionally it will be the whole assembly. Try the fuse to be cheap first, if that doesnt work, go to autozone or advance auto, pick up the assembly that fits your car year, and it is a snap to install. There may be a clip somewhere holding it in tightly, or it may just screw in and out. Hope it gets to working for you.
If the cigarette lighter is the ONLY thing that is not working. Either the wires have been disconnected or the coil is broken. Test the socket with a multimeter. If you have voltage and this checks out, Chances are the lighter itself (the coil) is damaged and should be replaced. If you have no voltage at the socket, the wires are likely corroded or broken somewhere and should be fixed/cleaned/soldered.
You might have a blown fuse, check the fuses. if the lighter does'nt heat up the lighter itself could be bad and need to be replaced, or the outer shell that holds the lighter might need to be replaced.
