and check for objects inside the cigarette lighter holder ie), coins,metel, also maybe clean the inside because over time the contacts could corrode

I need to figure this out as well. All of mine are out except for the right one on the rear of the center console.

I would take Mr745i advice from his post above & look
into your lighter plug & make sure there is nothing in there
causing it to ground out & blow the fuse . Once you know
they are clear then change the lighter fuse's in the glove
box & the one's in the rear right side of trunk .
