Im sure someone here will help ya figure it out.

What mods have you recently done?
Did you turn the ignition switch on?

possibilities-
Sometimes the Cig lighter is wired in reverse from factory.
hot wire on back of cig lighter came un plugged?

How do you know the fuse is good? If you used a meter, or just a visual inspection, that is sometimes deceptive. Stick another fuse in and try it.

If memory serves... the ACC fuse is 2nd from the left in the top row, and is 15 amp.

yes it is and I rang it out with meter. I added an amp and jumped of the cig lighter and I don't even think the cig lighter has worked in a while. I tried to plug in phone charger before and nothing. last night I installed Iron Aces mount and that's when when I discovered I had no power to acc switch. I don't even get a light on switch.

well the ACC switch should light up if the fuse is good.

I don't have my manual in front of me, but there are 2 fuses in the circuit. I think the acc fuse covers the cig lighter side of the circuit and the P&A fuse covers the rocker switch side of the circuit
Check the P&A fuse and the ACC fuse again.
