Check to see if there is power in the socket with a test light. If there is no power, you have a blown fuse. If there is power, it's probably just dirty, or poorly grounded.

Cigarette lighter fuse


by can't find the fuse, you mean you can't find one labeled as cigarette lighter? Or can't locate the fuses?
Visually check for a blown fuse, if none is found you have to assume that the device is broken.

VW T28 84 TDI Transporter cigarette lighter not working


There are at least two reasons why this could be happening. Firstly (and this has happened to me) there could be a foreign body dropped inside the lighter socket, preventing electrical contact. Have a look and remove. Secondly the fuse to the cigarette lighter may be blown. Beware! Fuses do not blow without a reason. If blown, it could be that a conducting foreign body may have been dropped into the socket. Remove the fuse cover and locate the appropriate fuse. DO NOT REPLACE WITH A HIGHER AMPERAGE FUSE. Should be no more than 20 amps. If the fuse blows again, try the lighter on another vehicle. ( A good friend??) If that blows the fuse too then the lighter is faulty with a low resistance. If not then the lighter circuit on the vehicle needs to be checked by an auto electrician. Good luck!
Cheers, Don.

Cig lighter fuse keeps blowing out


Research what else is on the circuit. In the old days when cars had more than one cigarret lighter I discovered that a penny fits in the socket perfectly and would cause a short.

Need location of fuse box containing cigarette lighter fuse


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.

Blown fuse


This fuse is most likely located under the hood in the fuse box, usually located on the right fender well. It also houses relay etc. You will find the burnt fuse there for sure.
