Electrical problem
1996 Honda Civic 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 166k miles

I have recently lost power to my lighter (power) outlet, and to my rear window defogger. I have replaced fuses under the hood and under the dash. (Not fun to reach!) With no luck. Is there an inline fuse I don't know about? I was powering a small compressor with the lighter socket, when both stopped working, so I figured it was a fuse.
any thoughts?
also power windows all work intermittantly. Wet?
frozen? Maine!
thanks for your time. Elizabeth

Your ciggarette lighter fuse is located in the passenger compartment fusebox. What I would do is check all the fuses with a test light, multimeter, fuse tester, etc. To ensure all the circuits are functioning properly. Make sure you replace the fuse with the proper amperage fuse as well.
