    Default Connecting my Cigarette lighter

    I have a compete cigartette unit with three connector plates (thin flat metal) Inside the hole in the car where it goes is a two wires connected to a small white thin female clip. What do I need to connect the two? Another cable? Where can I view this and buy it in line? Can someone please advise me?

    Thanks

    i think you're ciggy lighter should have a live feed, a negative and a feed to the bulb (live when the lights are on)

    if you can get hold of a circuit tester (or a couple of crocodile clips and a bulb!) you can probably quite easily find a suitable wire down there. The only bit you'll need to decide is whether to have a permanent (always live) live or whether you want a live that's only on with the key in... Personal preference really, but you should be able to find a suitable wire either from near the cigarette lighter or from the rear of the stereo... HTH!
