Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

You may have a few unrelated issues going on at the same time but all of these items do share a common power feed. The radio and mirrors both rely on a power feed from the 15a CIG fuse. You mentioned that the lighter was working but I'm wondering if that was a typo and should have said it is not working. Can you double check this fuse?
