Cigarette lighter uses a fusible link, located in the wiring behind the actual lighter socket. You can get a new fusible link at an auto parts store.

ok dont do what the other guy said there might be a cheaper easier way to do it. i just did this last week. if u look in your manual under fuses or cig lighter it shows u where it is located. when u open your hood there is a box labeled fuse box and if u take the cover off u find various type of fuses. there is a chart to show u which one is for the cig lighter. when u find it take it out and check if the fuse is burnt. if it is you r lucky. all u hav to do is by some fuses at sears for $3 and put one in. make sure its the correct size. if your fuse is not burnt u may hav a bigger problem tht i dont know how to fix. this sounds complicated but it truly is simple. im 16 and i had no trouble.

It's a yellow twenty amp fuse located in the underhood fuse box. Open the box, find the fuse, remove it and take it to a parts store like AutoZone, PepBoys, Advance, etc. Match it up with the fuses in the electrical section. The fuses all look the same until you try to plug the new one in.
