Today I had a flat tire. I plugged a Craftsman pump into the cigerette lighter to fill the tire. The pump died and the engine shut off. I tried starting the car but it would not turn over, nothing. I have all my electric,i.e. lights radio, etc. is there a reset button or did I fry something
x2 on the fuse/relay popping. Check the fuse box under the back seat. Those cigarette lighter receptacles are not designed to handle high amounts of current, which your tire compressor probably required while actively running.
I am with Mike on this one, check your battery cables, I have never heard of anything blowing a fuse or relay and it shut a car off that was running, the only fuse that I know of that may be able to do that would be the fuel pump fuse, or relay.
And I am pretty sure those are on a totally separate circuit.
