Most likely just replace it. You could pull the fuse and then use a small screwdriver to try and pull the tabs inside the receiver in toward the center a little. It could be that repeated insertion and extraction of the lighter or accessory plug has bent them outward enough that they're not making sufficient contact to power what you plug in. If that doesn't work, replace it and then put the fuse back in.

The fuse box for the 99 malibu is right next to the battery, under the hood. It is a 30amp "mini fuse". You can find a chart for which fuse to which circuit, by looking at the lid for the fuse box. This is one of the things I like about the car. If you are using the cigarrette lighter for smoking materials, clean the ashes and residue off the cigarrette lighter (when its cool) with a brass brush, outside the car. Do not let cigarrete material build up in the lighter or it will short.

There are 2 possible areas. 1 is the fuse box beside your left foot. 2 would be in the engine compatment on the right.

SOURCE: cigarette lighter does not work
This is Fuse 32 under the hood in the fuse box.
I had a problem with this fuse as well. I don't smoke so didn't care
when I first realized my lighter didn't work, but my check engine light
came on and when I took it to get the engine code read, the part they
connect to under the dash (ODBII) would not give them a code. I left
the store not knowing why my check engine light was on and annoyed
there was another problem to fix. After a few hours of troubleshooting
with my Dad, we figured out the same fuse that controls the lighters is
the same one that powers the OBDII system, and Onstar as well. I hope
that info helps someone else.

SOURCE: cigarette lighter
check fuse and look inside lighter socket see if rusted or corroded...if fuse is in good shape then backprobe lighter circuit... or just throw a new lighter housing and fuse at it... its cheap enuff...
