Question about 2003 Pontiac Grand Am
You either have a head gasket that is leaking,water pump leaking,radiator leak,you don`t say if there is any coolant under the car indicating a leak.you may have to have the cooling system pressure tested and checked for leaks.the popping sounds like air in the system when overheating.as far as the signals it may be a fuse or a flasher you don`t say if they worked before you took the lighter out.the cigarette lighter works with a fuse that may or may not operate another system.there is only one wire that attaches to the center of the socket that is the power wire and a ground wire that is usually connected to the side of the socket at the end.lighters will stop working if the heating element is burnt out(the part that you light the cigarette),it will not necessarily show.so if you have power on the feed wire and the ground is good then the chances are good the lighter assembly will need to be replaced.
