day time running lights failure-help!

Hi, I plugged in one of those 12v things into my cigarette lighter that gives power to an air pumper to inflate tires. I noticed something smoking so I turned the car off. THe smoke was coming from the glove box. I unplugged it and pulled the panel off to inspect the back of my cigarette lighter to see what had burned. Nothing! No fuses were blown, everything was okay. Started the car and the running lights were off. Everything else works. Any one have an idea to what happened?
