cigarette lighter sockets are notoriously easy to blow the fuse so i would certainly check it, cant help with which one it is on your car though - im sure someone will be able to help though. looks like Stormin beat me to it

is the inside of the socket clean?

Favourite things that blow this fuse are, electric tyre pumps, heating elements for tea making and and 12v car vacuum cleaners.
