Default Cigarette Lighter (no power)

I have no power to the cigarette lighter in dash(with ignition on). The fuse (23) is good, already checked it, and it'* in the inner slot (switched power). Does anyone know which relay delivers power to the lighter socket? I could guess it to be either mini relay 34 (accessory), or 38 (ignition 1). But maybe it'* neither one. Anyone with electrical knowledge of these new Bonnies? I hope the computer doesn't have something to do with this silly thing. Simplicity is gone, strike it from the dictionary. TIA for any assistance.

Correction to above post. I didn't look close enough at fuse 23 when originally pulled out, it was blown. I installed a new fuse, it blows instantaneously. I also aligned a good fuse to the outter rail 12+ (relay bypass), and it blows.so the fault has to be downstream of fuse. If anyone with a schematic can provide me with one-line routing info from the load side of fuse 23 to the lighter socket, it would be greatly appreciated. It looks like I have a zero ground on this particular branch ckt. If I'm lucky the fault will be the lighter socket itself after I figure out how to remove it.
