in any of the cig lighter is there any metal in any of the sockets front and rear? does the fuse blow when the socket is disconnected?
now from the fuse remove and then from the after fuse leg of the fuse terminal to the ground measure with a ohm meter to see if the wire is grounded . if so then you will need to stretch a new wire from the fuse box to the cig lighter connector
you will need a digital volt ohm meter . first key on engine off remove the fuse for the cig lighter . you need to find then hot wire first on the removed fuse . then once you know the hot wire then go to the other terminal set the meter to ohms and one lead to the terminal that is not hot and the other one to body ground . is there a resistance reading?
