Hi, fuse 13 also powers the rain sensor and the SRS light in the instrument cluster and the heated seats. It also powers the seat relay when the door is closed. That's why your seats only work with the door open. The fuse powers various other circuits via the X30 connector in the driver's footwell. If you did not disconnect the lighter you should do that. Also check for a coin stuck in the bottom of the lighter socket. It is not clear whether you removed the lighter and the socket or just the burner. If the lighter isn't the problem you will need to start disconnecting the other items until the fuse doesn't blow.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
