Default Electrical Gremlins

Hello,
I have had a 2000 for the last year and it left me confused tonight. The cigarette socket has never worked. I removed it tonight to clean it up or replace it. Now my ABS, traction control, and parking break indicator lights on the dash stay lit. Car drives normally. what could cause this? I checked all the fuses under the hood and rear seat. Anyone ever have this problem? I disconnected the battery for a while hoping to reset something but no help. I feel like it has to be something I did when I was inspecting fuses.

any ideas appreciated,
Thanks- shawn

As far as the ABS goes..I'd check all fuses, maxis, wiring to each WSS, then from there, have it scanned for an ABS code at a shop, that will tell you what is malfunctioning, might be something easy.

Turns out an electrical lead to the ABS computer broken. It broke in the fuse box under the hood. By jiggling fuses I caused an aged lead to break. So I did cause it indirectly. Wouldn't have figured this out on my own- had a dealer diagnose it.
