First get a test light, and figure out if your lighter is missing ground, or positive. Ground the test light, and poke into the lighter to the center pin. Make sure your key is on, and if the light lights, you're missing ground on the lighter. If it doesn't light, you're missing the positive. Some circuits do go bad in even the newest of cars, and a quick fix would be to fuse a wire and run it to the center pin input on the back of the lighter. I do agree that lighter sockets do go bad all the time, but check for power first.
