Is the problem with your cigarette/power outlet or with your device charger?
If your problem is with your device charger, and your fuse is not staying in the socket inside of your device charger, you are likely missing a connector or spring. If you took it apart and did not do so carefully, you may have lost a piece that is essential in creating a circuit before reaching the internal PCB and going to your cord. Look up your particular charger to view a diagram, and ensure that you have all of your pieces.
For any electrical problems with your vehicle refer to a mechanic or other trained professional. The following instructions are only for a trained mechanic or electrical engineer.
If your problem is with the outlet, check the fuses in the fuse panel (usually below the steering wheel in a small compartment), and find the one for your DC/AccPwr/Aux. (May be a combination or variation of these.) Refer to your owner's manual or a Haynes/Chilton Repair manual if the fuse panel does not have a diagram.
The fuse will likely be a green 30A fuse. If it is burned out:
Safely disconnect your vehicle's battery from power, then remove and replace the fuse.
If you have found the fuse and it is good, it is likely a bad connection to your power outlet.
If you know how to dissemble the console/dashboard and can access the outlet from behind:
With the vehicle's battery disconnected, determine the hot and neutral/ground wires with a volt meter. (In most modern vehicles the hot is "positive", and the "negative" wire is neutral and carries the ground as well.) The contact point- on the base of the outlet- is hot, and the "can" connection- on the side of the outlet- is the neutral and ground. If necessary, replace the female connectors on the wire ends and reconnect to the outlet.
Reconnect power and check outlet with a volt meter.
If this still has not solved your problem, you likely have a short in your circuitry and will need to replace the wiring.
