Can your car's cigarette lighter short circuit?

I use mine to charge my cell phone and to listen to my iPod, but now it's not working. It's not the chargers themselves, because they work in other cars. Also, my cigarette lighter which I never have used before is also not working. Does this happen to a cigarette lighter if it over heats or anything like that? Is there anywhere you can reset it?

how many parts are there in a typical automobile?

Sometimes on older cars the wiring on the back of the socket itself can come loose. Has happened to me on 2 seperate older cars I have had. First check the fuse as that is the easiest to try. If the fuse is still in good condition and has not been tripped, you will have to take the Lighter Socket out and check to see if the 2 wires in the back are still connected to it. This can be hard and varies from car to car on how to get it out
