But I checked BOTH fuse Panels? And replaced any fuses that were missing or blown. Even my Test Light confirmed whether fuses were blown or not, still there was no indication on either panel of where the Cigarette Lighter Fuse was.

Do you have 12 volts and a good ground @ the lighter?

I'm getting nothing from the Cigarette Lighter, no power at all, even tried sticking some aluminum Foil in there attempting to get a jolt and I didn't even get the slightest shock.

I borrowed my buddies 12 Volt DC Tester, or was that the wrong type of Probing rod to use?

The only reference I can find says it is in the fuse panel behind the driver side kick panel, and is the 2nd fuse from the bottom 2nd row. 15 amp fuse (Blue). Have you pulled the driver side kick panel?

The owner'* manual for your car can be found here:

http://www.manualowl.com/am/Oldsmobi...-88/Manual/961

One page 266 it shows a fuse panel on the right side (passenger side) that you access by removing the sound insulator on the right side of the passenger foot well. Fuse 3 (top row, 3rd from left) is listed for accessory power outlets. Look at the manual the link takes you to.

I've looked and tested both Fuse Panels. The 2nd Fuse Panel int eh Manual said it would be hard to get to but it was all but to of the Firewall Screws and I had it, all those fuses tested Positive for power and that they weren't blown. I also pulled each out and did a visual check on them just in case the Fuse was barely making connectivity with each other and none of the fuses were blown. It'* definately became a head scratcher for sure, I wonder if the Cigarette Lighter itself is just junk, I mean there is a lot of corrosion inside of the Lighter .

If you see a lot of corrosion on the inside, right now would be the best time to remove the entire lighter socket and check for voltage AT the 2 wires.

Can you unplug the power wire that is connected to the back of the socket and see if you have 12 volts?

The Power Plug does have Voltage, so I guess we have successfully isolated the problem as being the Cig. unit, since the Plug DOES have Voltage running through it.
