The lighter definitely works, burnt the heck out of my finger messing with it.

marlboromike That outlet is a constant. It is always on even with the key out. Bob, I cannot recall where I hooked up my Opel lighter jn my door...but it works fine. One wire has to light up the LED light in the lighter when u turn on the parking lights and the lighter itself...cannot remember if I ran it from the accessory outlet or not. But never had an issue with fuses.

Sly Bob Had the dash been apart at any time? I know on the Solstice some people would take the boomerang apart and forget to plug in the outlet. Might just be disconnected.

Fuse 30 is the only one in the circuit. In addition to being blown, it could just be loose and there is a known issue with fuses and relays loosening, so you try removing it and reinserting it, if you haven't already. I assume that you have tried something else in the outlet to confirm that the problem it isn't with the pump.

This is correct, and is the reason that it is called an "Accessory Power Outlet", shortened to "Outlet" in the wiring diagrams. Putting lighter anywhere in the name could suggest to someone that they could use it as a lighter socket, and that would certainly damage it, possibly to the point of causing a fire.
