No worries- I'd bet Don would do worse in Danish!
With a good fuse and no power in the accessory socket/ cigarette lighter, I'd have expected a previous shorting incident that at least let some smoke out while melting wires behind the dash. I haven't taken the time to study the technical information manual and confirm there's no relay in that circuit, but would't expect one. A failed relay (damaged by previous overcurrent) could act that way.
