The lighter does not work and would like to use it for charging my phone. Is there a fuse located somewhere? Looked at the fuses and the cover listing all of them and did not see lighter on there. I love this site.
Do you
have the same problem?

It sounds like fuse number 2 or 8 is out. Here is a guide and some fuse panel diagrams to help you check it out and get it working again:

(Check out the diagrams below)

You can save this page and always have it for your fuses. :)

Please let us know what happens.

Cheers, Ken

My power outlet stopped working, it is not the fuse. How do I fix it?

Welcome, are you sure it is not just the heating element? Did you check the wiring circuit to the lighter? As far as removing the socket, I would have to get at the backside of dash, see what is holding it.
