Default cigarette lighter won't work. All fuses okay.

I plugged in a fan and it worked about 3 seconds and stopped, and the
lighter stopped working.

Any ideas?

Fuses may be ok ,
But I wonder if they are tight / clean enough to pass the current required ?
Can you try a volt meter to see if an actual voltage is present

The electrical connection points inside the socket frequently
become corroded or "burned". It may be hard to get
adequate contact when they are in this poor condition.

Use a VOM to be sure you have voltage up to this socket.
If so, cleaning the internal contacts may be all you need to
do.

Good adivice.

And to make sure there is continuity in the party you light the
cigarette with. Or borrow one from another car.
