I recently blew a fuse (shorted the cig lighter) but upon replacing the fuse (2nd from left, middle row beneath steering column on 96 OWB) the heated seats and mirror adjustment won't work. Cig lighter still won't work as well! All other fuses there seem to be fine. Also, I checked fuses under hood but they also are all fine.

Any other places I could check?

Check the power distribution panel under the hood also.

Also might want to check behind the driver's side mirror inside trim piece. The wiring for the power mirror runs behind this piece. Some years/models had an issue with this wiring getting pinched/chafed thus blowing the fuse sometimes repeatedly/intermitently.

If all the fuses are known good (and the offending fuse checked with on ohm-meter even if it looks like it didn't blow) then it has to be a wiring/connector issue.
