Default Broken cigarette lighter for a '01..Help?

the front cigarette lighter port dosnt seem to be working, i plug my cell phone charger into it and it dosnt seem to have power, while the one in the back works fine... could it be a blown fuse?

Check for any corrosion in the socket. Use a DVOM and check the voltage. If nothing, check the fuse. If that'* good, you will need to check the wiring.

Sounds like you blew a fuse. Sometimes new adapter devices can short out when installed or uninstalled.
