Cigarette Lighter/Charger Fuse?

Anybody know which fuse controls the cigarette lighter/charger outlets on the center console? Think I blew it the other day when coins fell into the front outlet. Thanks in advance.

Good for you. Hopefully, the Indy dealer will work it out so that most of my work is covered by the warranty. The inspection should be done soon and I'll know.
