SOURCE: cigarette lighter fuse location
The cigarette fuse is located in the battery junction box under the hood, it is fuse # 10 and is a 20A fuse, open the hood and find the box it is on the passenger side towards the back of the compartment, it is 10th in line on the top row, also you can check these fuses without removing them through the clear plastic top so that should make things a little easier too, hope this helps

SOURCE: fuse for the cigarette lighter
First off, make sure if you are replacing the fuse yourself, take the keys OUT of the ignition and put them in your pocket!
I'm not 100% sure, but there should be a fuse box under the hood on the driver's side. In the lid of the box after you remove it (or on a label on the top of the box) is usually a diagram showing the location and function of all the fuses in that box. I think it's listed in the manual as being fuse spot F54. If my sources are correct it should be a 20amp (yellow) fuse but always check the recommended fuse replacement by the diagram or in your owner's manual.
A helpful tool to buy from an auto parts store or auto parts section of a wal mart or k-mart, is an automotive fuse puller with extra replacement fuses for your car. If you're unsure of what fuse is the right one, take the old fuse out carefully with needle-nose pliers and take it to the store to compare. If you take out the right fuse, driving with out it should not harm your car in any way (it's broken already).
I hope I could help you find the right fuse box for the cigarette lighter. Good luck, and don't forget to rate! Thank you.

I had exactly same problem. I could not use my GPS or charge my cell phone.
In front of the driver sit, there are actually 2 fuse boxes. You probably found the first one. A second one is located above well hidden. Once you find it, you'll find the fuse you are looking for.

I would put a red volt meter lead on the middle and a the black lead on the outside. If it checks above 12 vols, the lighter itself is bad. If no voltage is present, you have to check all the positive wires back to the battery. If those are all working, you have a bad ground.
