Clock went out on my 2000 Lexus ES300. I don't see a fuse for it? Nothing else not working

There isn't a fuse. Clocks are very low voltage and ampere draw. Access the plug. Pull it and replace it(corrosion). If it starts working agian, you are good to go. Otherwise replace the clock module.

2000 Nissan Frontier Cigarette lighter not working while I use tire compresser using,

Tire compressor probably draws too much current for the socket. Are you sure it is a cigarette lighter socket? Some sockets are just to provide accessories 12v. Did a cigarette lighter come with this socket? True cigarette lighter sockets are generally fused at 25 or 30 Amps

What is a PTC 4.5amp and where is it located?

It acts as a circuit breaker. It will be in you TIPM, (totally integrated power module). It's just a glorified fuse/relay box under your hood. It won't look like a fuse, but It will have a clear top so you can visibly see a burn. PTC stands for positive temperature coeffiecient, wich means, as temperature rises, so does resistance until the circuit opens. If may have occured due to an excessive current draw from your cigarette lighter if you have plugged anything into it.
