I didn't see the cig lighter mentioned in my online resource, but with my experience on GM vehicles, the under dash driver's side fuse box usually has a cig lighter fuse listed. If not, then you'll have to get a fuse tester and test each and every fuse until you find the burnt out one.
If the fuse is not burnt out, there may be a broken wire behind the console.
