Cigar lighter ... it don't work ...

... My cigar lighter doesn't work when you plug a charger into it. Well, now it does work because it's lying in my trunk with the rest of the ashtray. I'm making a little wood panel to mount my boost gauge in (which by the way, is all plugged in and works great, although it just sits in the empty ashtray area), and was considering buying another cigar lighter to mount alongside it, and just plug into the connection from the old one. I want to make sure the problem was the old lighter itself, not the connection, before I buy a new one to plug into it. Have multimeter ... what do I look for from the connection?
