Well, it could be that it's unplugged...remove the center console and see if it is. If it isn't, fuse could be blown...

You have checked your fuses right? If it's not your fuse then it could be in the relay. What year is your Lude? 90-91 Ludes have a relay on the side of the relay panel.
The one circled in blue is the lighter relay for 90-91 models

Wiring diagram:


And on 88-89 models the relay is on the relay panel



hope this helps some. good luck.

Here's a thread I did on wiring, check it out if you want.

Do you have an aftermarket stereo installed? when you install an aftermarket deck, you have to remove that center console and yes, unplug the cigarette lighter to physically remove it...the installer could've forgot to replug it.

I'm glad that you liked the wright-up.

And what Prelude13 said, check to see if it came un-pluged.
Here is what the connector looks like:

lol i like the unplugged idea, btw why does the 3rd gens lighter never shut off. i have a radar detector, and the same one in my buddies car shuts off when he turns the car off. but noo mine i have to manually turn off, that makes like 3 things i gotta turn on at night... the lights, the gauge lights and gauge pod, and that stupid radar.
