DC Amperage of the charger in this case has no bearing on the modules in the car. What VOLTAGE was the charger operating at and was it a clean DC current or was AC leaking through the charger while connected as well?

I have seen a failed voltage regulator fry electronics while it was outputting 20v DC and I have also seen as little as a few hundred milliamps of AC voltage leaked through a faulty charger brick an entire vehicle.

Check you charger carefully Bee and be sure to have it under load while doing so.
