Question about 1989 Chevrolet Corvette
Looks strange what you said. Since you pushed the cigarette lighter in,means that made a contact to receive power to heat the element. Since you asked for that and immediately you have lost Radio and Heater,means that either you had somewhere a bad contact and blown the fuse for radio and heater.Now having as you said fuses okay surely is strange. If you can,try to remove the the dash holding the cigarette lighter and see at the back where the wires are and see if you have any bad contact.or some radios have an extra glass fuse see if is any check if is blown. the same also for the heater. Always work with ignition OFF,to avoid any contact .

It should be the fuse. They are located under the hood in the fuse box with the relays. you probably plugged something in that was faulty or needed to much power. the fuse is only a 10. i upped mine to a 20.

You need to replace the lighter socket. Both of my 1988 S10's had the same problem after a few years of using my cell phone battery charger in the lighter plug. I replaced it 10 years ago and it has been fine ever since. Something in the original socket wears out and causes it to short out when something is plugged in. Good luck!
