Does it blow when you plug other things in?

If not it sounds like the Ipod charger has a short in it.

hate to say it but the ciggarette lighter socket isnt really made for plugging things like that in it.thats why now they have power outlets that are separate.other wise maybe sticking in a higher fuse?i know that isnt recommened but its an idea.does itblow fuses when you use the ciggarette lighter?if so maybe replace the outlet and try again.sorry im not of much help.

Since its blowing when anything is plugged in I'd eliminate the outlet itself first. You can pick up a replacement at walmart or in the help! section at advanced for less than $10. The swap is pretty self explanatory.

Are you going through light bulbs too? Its possible your alternator is overcharging if fuses are blowing like crazy. Go to advanced and ask them to check your battery, alternator and starter. Its free...
