cigarette lighter not working and not fuse

2004 S500 4Matic. Just got the Valentine and trying to hook up to cigarette lighter wiring. Before disecting, tested and lighter does not work. Checked all three fuse boxes and no fuse blown.... What could it be?
Trying to hook up to the overhead console(sunroof switch) but cannot tell which wiring to tap in for + and -.
Any help would be appreciated.

I figure 1 of 2 possiblilities.

Simple one first, the lighter itself is Kaput. Had this happen on my W220, checked it via the rear lighters which did work. I substituted one of the lighters from my W140 (retired) and it continues to work just fine.

Second one is from my experience with our 95E320. Lighter wouldn't work, neither anything I placed in the lighter. Fuse good (sound familiar?) It was the actual connection to the lighter socket. The wire looked intact, but due to the flexing of the ash tray opening, the copper at the connector fatiqued. I removed the connector, expanded it to release the copper wire shards, and re-crimped it to the existing wire. Worth a look but probably a lot of tear out to find.

Checked.

Thank you. I checked and looks like the connection is bad. I am going to tackle this and get it working again.

Ok , similar prob. 2004 s500. phone charger came apart and shorted out cig lighter. Fuses are good and replace ash tray with new lighter. No power to socket from engine. can not find a diagram to show path of cig lighter wiring from engine bay trough fire wall to ash tray.
Seems easier to run new power then to trace where short might be. Anyone Help
