Best Answer

It could be the fuse, a bad connection or the lighter itself. You'll need to find out which it is. First, start by checking for voltage at the back of the lighter. Use a volt meter or automotive test light to check for voltage at the wire as it enters the socket. If there is no voltage there, start tracking back to the next connector. Keep going until you find a place where there is voltage, then, with a little inductive logic, you'll know what to fix.
