Open the drivers door and right on the side of the dash, next to the vents you will see a panel that says fuses with a little lightning bolt. Pull that off and you will see them all there and their locations listed on the rear of your panel you took off.

Mine says "Cig/aux" and it's 10amp.

When my rear lighter didn't power my gps I found that te fuse for THAT particular lighter is on the passenger side, same location and it's under "AUX PWR".

Good luck!

Edit: forgot to mention that THIS fuse is a 20amp
