Without an expensive test kit there is no way to properly test a relay. The best way would be to swap out a known working relay. Now to address your issue, the 12v accessory outlets are not driven by a relay. They are connected via your ignition (similar to the radio or glove box light). Since they are all not working I would say that they possibly share a common ground point and that has been disconnected, or that they share multiple fuses. There could be a fuse under the dash and also a fuse in the engine bay. I would carefully read the owners manual and look for multiple fuse locations.
because the battery died the antitheft code for the radio activated . You will have to r-enter the code for the radio to work. If thee is no power to the radio check the fuses for the ignition as the power will come from the accessories side of the switch. Reset the CPU program in the ECM by using a fault scanner.
I would say you did in fact blow a fuse. Fuse number 5 is a 20amp fuse that the lighter and radio get power from. The fuse gets power from an accessory relay which could also have been damaged. Be sure and check the socket for damage before you try to use it again.
According to the Haynes repair manual: "There is no fuse and relay box inside the passenger compartment. However, there are a number of fuses, relays and circuit breakers in various locations under the dash. The heated mirror circuits and the circuit for the lower instrument panel power outlet (in the floor console) are fused with self-resetting fuses that are only serviceable by an authorized dealer." However, in the fusebox under the hood (a.k.a Integrated Power Module) there is a fuse RDO/IP IGN which is the fuse for the radio. Check this fuse. Both the radio and the Cigar Lighter are fused through the IPM.
