    Default Adding a illuminated cigar/ashtray light

    Help!
    I bought a light ring for ciggy lighter, and after a deal of bother, manager to fit it. The Haynes manual shows a grey/yellow cable to connect to bulb. Found this, but no light. The only way to get power was to 'tap' into black wire to lighter feed. This worked but after a while it 'blows' the bulb.
    Any body help please, as dont want to keep replacing bulbs.
    This is original lighter unit I am using. Note that in Haynes manual it shows a resistor in line to bulb. Is this on the factory fitted unit?
