This appeared in my glovebox after I got an engine bay cleaning when I went to retrieve my GPS power cable and I've not since been able to use my cigarette lighter port to charge my Ipod or my GPS.

I checked the fuse under the dash and they're standard vehicle fuses and all of them are fine. What fuse is this and where does it go? I checked around the glove box and under the dash and due to my amateur knowledge of vehicles, I might need a photo of where this goes.

well based on the other items there, it looks like the end of a plug that you would plug into a cigarette light power plug. like say a car phone charger... the ends come off and there is fuse in that similar to that. Pull your ipod and gps chargers apart and see if somehow the fuse fell out of one of them

just my first guess

Okay, I'm pretty much an idiot. What happened is the GPS recharge cable fell apart and it caused a short inside the cigarette lighter which blew the fuse so I had to buy new fuses and replaced it and now it's good. :E
