Use a D C tester and check for voltage it could be a bad lighter. if that dose not work take your voltage tester and put one lead in the lighter hole on the center and ground the other lead to the metal on the car check for voltage. You may have a bad ground.
there must have been a weak connection somewhere in the line. use a volt meter to trace from the lighter to the fuse box. I have also seen the wire connection go bad during a short in the back of the fuse box itself where the wire goes in. follow the 12 volts and you will find your problem.
Try a different device with an LED on it , plugged in to see if you have power. If not start with your fuse. If the lighter is out and a coin falls in there... no power.. If it all checks out, look for a new lighter .
most probably its a fuse. go to your manual and it'll indicate the location of your fuse box. most likely there are two under the left and right engine bay covers. pop the fuse covers and you'll find the fuse for the lighters. this info is also in the manual.
Anyone having this problem should be aware that there is a second cigarette lighter inside the bottom of the console. You should check to see if that unit is working or not as well. If both units are out, you could have a bigger problem. You wouldn't want to replace the lighter unit and have it still not work.
