Have you checked the fuse yet? If it was blown, check the cover for the proper size rating and see if the old one is the same size or not. If it was smaller, then it was replaced improperly. If it was the right size or bigger, then whatever amperage that defroster was drawing proved that fuses save lives!

Probably a blown fuse replace it and you should be back in business to charge you phone. Anything that gets hot or cold uses a LOT of power and will likely overload your 12V outlets.

Do you know what's wrong with your heater?
