Question about 1986 Honda Accord
Check for blowen fuse in your fuse box.... it may be under hood, should be 20amp.

Check your fuse box, it might be that simple. It should be located in the engine compartment (under the hood). When you find the fuse box, there should be a map of each fuse there and what each fuse powers. If one of the fuses is burned out, you should be able to replace it (make sure you use the same rated fuse -- a 20Amp for a 20Amp, or a 5Amp for a 5Amp -- usually they are color coded) and that should solve the problem. Japanese cars USUALLY have all of the fuses under the hood, but there is a chance that there might be a fuse box (or second fuse box) in the glove compartment, or under the dashboard.
If the fuse is not the problem, there might be a short circuit between the fuse box and the broken components. Bad wiring is much less likely, and much harder to fix, so if it is worth it for you to get it fixed, I recommend visiting a professional mechanic. If you don't want to invest that much money to repairing the issue, but need the Cig lighter to power a cell phone charger or GPS, you can run a bypass wire from the fuse box straight to the cig lighter. This will give you back your lighter, but will not solve the problem, which could indicate something more important, so it would be good to have a professional mechanic check it out when you have the time and money.
