It may have come disconnected. There is an electrical contact that the tray plugs into, there are no wires attached. Try removing the tray and inspecting the connections on there. But check the fuse first;)

i dont think it came disconnected. The little light still works that in the middle of the ashtray door, and would one fuse control just that one cigarette lighter?

Oh ok, if the light works then its definatly not the fuse. But I would still remove it and take a look at the connections, it only takes a second. Is it the lighter that's not working or are you not getting any power at all when you plug something in?

nothing works when i plug it in there. ive tried my radar and my monster cable for my ipod, id like to have them both plugged in at once. but i only have the cigarette lighter that works by my e-brake.
