Your power points/cigar lighter ports get the power from two fuses both located in the under hood fuse panel. The fuses you need to check are the fuses 29 (20 AMP) and the fuse #30 (15AMP). See the diagram in the link below for the fuse panel, the fuse locations are number as well so you can check them.
