There are two fuses that power the cigar lighter and the Aux power point, both are located in the underhood fuse panel. Check the fuse #33 (20 AMP) and the #2 (20 AMP) fuse to make sure both are in place and have power in and out of them.

Meaning both fuses have no power?

Did you check them with a volt meter?
