It seems the ac-adapter plug thingy (i.e. the cigarette lighter) doesn't work in my car. I suspect a blown fuse. I have neither the time nor the inclination to take it in to get fixed if I can do it myself. Halp?

Bought a new GPS for a road trip coming up soon. Car charger didn't work out of the box. Checked in another car and it works there, so it's not the charger but rather the cigarette lighter in my car that doesn't work. Researched a little and found that it may be that the fuse in my car is blown.
tl;dr How do I find out what fuse powers the cigarette lighter in my car, whether it's working, and if it's not how to change it. Please assume very little car knowledge.
