Cigarette/Accessory Plug Question

hi, this is my first post here. i have a question i hope someone will know the answer to. why does the car charger for my cell phone not work in either of the cobalt's cigarette/accessory plugs? it works fine in our other vehicle. just seems strange. thanks & great forum.

I have that problem in the mid section plug, most things don't work in that plug but the front one works with everything.

I managed to blow my mid one charging my laptop and the fuse seems to be fine and all the connections seem to be fine when I pulled the panel off... got to go tracing when I get time to find where the problem is.

I agree its probably the fuse in your car and its a very easy fix.

Thanks guys, hate to hear a fuse would blow so easily! Cell phone does not pull much. Have a good New Year folks!

this happened to my mom's car once and it turned out a little piece metal broke off in the plug. but other than that all i can say is do like everyone else says and check your fuses. see if anybody you know can use their cell charger to see if it works for them?
