Pardon me in reference to my 1st post about the dash lights going out right after changing the fuse, plus it looks like someone else's question has entwined with mine, but anyways!! Thank you for responding polar, my husband just clarrified to me that there is no power going to the cigarette lighter or the aux...He has changed and checked the fuses and they are good.

1st of all make sure the penny is out of the lighter. Then check your fuses under the dash the fuse cover and or you owners manual should tell you which fuses are for headlight & tail light. Depending on how new your car is, you may even have some main fuses under the hood in the engine compartment that may have gotten blown.
Changing the fuse in the fuse box wont solve your problem On the back of the socket that is mounted in the dash that the lighter pushes into has a inline fuse that if over heated will blow. You will have to change the lighter. Toyota wanted close to $70 for a replacement lighter for my Tacoma. I never used the cigarette lighter for cigarett but needed to charge my cell phone so I replaced it with a dash Mount 12 Volt Power Socket for $10. Good luck.
There are actually FIVE cigarette lighter/ Auxilliary Power Outlets shown in the wiring diagrams for your vehicle. The Instrument Panel  Accessory Power Outlet (Cigarette Lighter) is protected by the "LTR" Fuse (# 53 - 20 Amp) in the Power Distribution Center (PDC) in the engine compartment.
The Instrument Panel  Accessory Power Outlet is protected by the "AUX PWR" Fuse (20 Amp) In the Instrument Panel Fuse Block on the left side of the dash.
The Center Seat Accessory Power Outlet and the (two) Center Console Power Outlets are protected by the "AUX PWR 2" Fuse (20 Amp) In the Instrument Panel Fuse Block on the left side of the dash. NOTE: If your vehicle is not equipped with the Center Seat Accessory Power Outlet, or the Custom Floor Console (optional), this fuse position will most likely be empty.
First thing to check: fuse(s) for the cigarette lighter/power port, which may also be the same fuse for the interior lighting that went out. Could post the location of your fuse box (most Hyundai cars have 2 - one under hood, and a second under the dash (where your power port/interior lighting fuses are most likely located)), if you could clarify which model/year/engine size Hyundai car/truck is giving you problems.
In earlier model vehicles, the cigarette lighter is on the same circuit as the dash lights/ radio/ interior lights. Maybe it's not labeled as cigarette lighter, try other fuses. also, there should be a fuse panel both inside dash and under the hood. Also, sometimes there can be an in-line fuse right behind the cigarette lighter.
If by "power Outlets" you mean the cigarette lighter, the fuse is generally the same line as the interior lights, or the radio.
The Fuses are generally located in either of 3 places: 1. When you open drivers door - on the side of the dash a panel can be removed., 2. Just directly under the steering wheel, perhaps a panel is right there, below and or to the left of steering, or under the dash at this location, again to the left of the steering wheel. 3rd, some fuses may be located in or behind, or under the glove-box.
There is also a power distribution center (a black box with fuses and relays) next to the battery under hood. The cover can be removed and under the inside of the cover a description of fuses and relays are written here, typically. The cigarette lighter fuse would be on the inside of the cabin in one of the areas as described above.
Hope this is what you are looking for - even if it isn't the cigarette lighter fuse, you can find the fuse that you are looking for in one of these locations. Good luck. Canada E1A 2H4
Definately sounds like a fuse if 2 locations are not working. Cigarette lighters are 2 wires to hook up so to have a faulty port is highly unlikely. Check your owners manual for the fuse location. It will probably not be under the hood in that fuse box but under the steering wheel up and under the dash. No big deal though.
Look in your manual for the Power Distribution Box reference in Roadside Emergencies. It should be located under the hood on the driver's side. My 2002 Explorer has two power points on the center console and the 20A fuses in the Power Distribution Box for them are number 7 and number 9. They cost $3.99 each at AutoZone. The cigar lighter fuse under the dash is unrelated.
