I will check again when wifey gets the car home from her running around.
I checked the owners manual and can spot the lighter socket fuse for the dash 12 socket in front of the transmission selector BUT not the internal socket in the arm rest. The owners manual also shows some additional fuse box on top or bottom of the one on the left side driver leg area BUT my 05 does not seem to have what is in the book.
I checked under the hood and elsewhere. What I am thinking is maybe the socket is bad in the console or a lead came off behind the socket. I can get my volt meter leads into the socket and no volts at all.
Seems the angle of the socket requires the plug to go in at a steep angle which may have done some internal damage.
Will need to look again this evening.
