Default 1993 Oldsmobile Eighty-Eight Cigarette Lighter Issues?

I'm trying to hook up my Andriod Phone to my Cigarette Lighter, however my Cig Lighter does not currently work, so my natural instinct is to check the Fuse for it, however, after searching my Owners Manual and even checking the Fuse Panel, I cannot locate anything that is labeled "Cigarette Lighter", any ideas on what another name would be for it? Or where I could locate it at?

If you have a test light, you just may want to test all the fuses.

I also believe that your car may have a fuse box near the firewall in front of the passenger'* seat.

Is it possible that the 2nd Fuse Panel might have it in there? I do have a Test light, so I guess I'll have to take a jab at retesting all the fuses then, thanks for the heads up.

Just finished testing the Fuses and all seem good, even replaced a few that were missing, however now I am still scratching my head, I also found the other Fuse Panel under the Passenger Side.

How about checking to see if you have power at the back of the lighter? You may just have a bad lighter socket!

Would it be tested the same as the fuses?

if you look in the socket,center in the back is hot the side is ground, use the ground on the lighter socket and probe the center/back to see if you have power.

Checked it and I have no power from my Tests, is it possible that the Terminal itself is shot?

More likely the fuse is blown. You just haven't found it yet.
