Today I was trying to put in an iPod car adapter into the adapter hole (that is where it is suppose to be inserted) but when I did, It turned off my radio and adapter hole. The radio and cigarette hole do not work now. The radio will not turn on and the cigarette hole is non functional. I am not sure how to fix this, I would appreciate some help! Thanks!

Check the 15A CIG Fuse - located in the instrument panel junction box, lower left side of dash.

Most likely it is blown . You need to replace it. Sometimes it is best to use an ohm meter to ensure they are good . Or bad in this case.
