Have seen this problem before. You need to look under dash at brake pedal and find a blue switch with plunger contacting pedal, disconnect connector and jump with a peice of wire and drive to see if cruise works and if it does replace deactivation switch this should get you going.

sounds like the lighter itself is bad because the fuse for the lighter is the same as the fuse for the connecter in which the inspection machine plugs in to.

Your thought that the end of something fell into the lighter fried something is likely true. I can't imagine that the wire could be fried and the fuse is still good. check to see if the fuse you checked was the right one. If it was and it is good, a wire on the back of the receptacle may have come lose. The end that fell into the receptacle, did it get hot or damaged? That could be a clue as to if the receptacle was shorted when the end fell into it or if not, then look for a lose connection.

i do not have a picture of , fuse box, but you dont need one. Check on the left lower dash, right by the parking brake handle for a little black door, open it, and check every single fuse in order to find the broken one. Make sure that ignition is OFF, and that you replace fuse with one of the same value and color. Th lighter is interconnected with other accesories, so if the fuse is really shorted, you must have lost some lights, radio or other accessories as well. If you find no broken fuses, then the lighter itself might have bent contacts that render it unusable.
