Default OBDII Communications failure

Hi all,

Only second post here, but was wondering if anyone has seen this.

Just bought a 2009 Ram 1500 (22000 miles) from a used car dealership and when they brought it to me after cleaning it up they said it was out of inspection (didn't notice) and they're "guy" was gone for the day that could get me a sticker. Asked me to bring it back or get it done and send them the bill. So, my wife takes it to a local inspection station today and it fails!!!! The reader says, "ODBII Communications Result: Fail". I still have the factory warranty on it so I'm taking it in next week to have them look it over, but was just wondering if anyone has come across this besides myself.

The cig lighter(power port) fuse is probably blown. Most common cause of no comm with the scanner
