Default Cigarette lighter

I have a 93 sse and my cig lighters do not work i was wondering if they were ran by a fuse or what. Some input would be a great help.

Do your interior lights work? Did you find the fusebox that'* located below the dash to the left of the steering column? (It should swing down for access when you release a latch.) According to the '93 owner'* manual, fuse 15 (middle row, last on the right) controls "Courtesy Lights/Power Mirrors" and I'm thinking it does the lighters as well. Once you reach the fusebox down there, check each of them anyway.

There are additional fuses inside the right-side kick panel and under the hood (on the firewall in the MaxiFuse/Relay Center) but I don't believe either of those serve the lighter circuit.
