Wink 2003 325i Fuses help please!

Hey guys,

So i got a 2003 325i 4 door last week, absolutely love the car but I'm just having some problems, this is my first car so i don't really know much about it and would really appreciate some help,

-So basically-
The drivers heated seats,
DSC
Passenger heated seats

Buttons ALL don't work, all of these buttons are on the same column(all right beside each other)

I checked the fuse box and it didn't come with a little guide so that didn't help. i looked online and the one's people said to check all looked perfectly fine, When i turn the car on(key in second position) the DSC light and some other lights DO NOT turn on, hopefully that's not to big of a problem

The Cigarette lighter is also not working anymore thanks to my friend placing a little piece of metal in there and then pushing the lighter on top, resulting in loads of sparks, i turned off the car waited for 5-10 seconds then tried removing it with a little wooden stick which seemed to work at the time but now the cigarette lighter is not functioning at all ! so I'm assuming the fuse has blown, or at least hoping it was nothing else. (I can upload some photos when i find my camera if anyone needs)

Since i don't really know much i would love to know what you guys have to say, and maybe some tips on how i can fix it. It's pretty cold outside so i would love to fix the heated seats ASAP!

p.s - when i fix the DSC should i keep it on or off?
and the shift knob rotates 360 degree's so i need a new one if you know of any nice ones for a descent price!

cheers!

Sounds like it might be a problem with your button panel if all the things on it don't work, and you already checked the fuses. Take off the panel and see if the wiring behind there isnt kinked or anything, or try to maybe check the switches if they work. Sounds like they might not be.
