    i don't think it can be done like that, as the switch only sends pulses, not old style fixed feeds..the switch is CANBUS as well..

    it may upset the lighting controller if you do...for an Ign feed, i'd tap out of the cigarette lighter..no canbus watching over that circuit and plenty of current avaliable spare.
