Cut off the cig lighter plug and connect it to 12v switched line & ground.
Ok so the screen came with a power kit that plugs into the cigarette lighter. Is there anyway to directly connect the power to the car so when the car turns on, the screen turns on so I don't have to plug it in through the cigarette lighter?
anyone have diagram for this?
well i still want an open cigarette lighter, I dont want to completely cut it off. Maybe there is a way I can splice into it? Behind the console?
power supply. Which im going to get a opus p.o.l 15watt. I think it around $30.00. multiple monitors or 10'' monitors or bigger, you have to have one.
Cut off the cigarette lighter plug on the LCD power cord, not the cig lighter in your ride.
The t-taps (or vampire taps) that someone else mentioned will work just fine. Tap into any switched 12v power line.

Ok, and let me make sure before I go cutting wires. all i do is , cut the cig lighter end on screen with wire cutters. Strip it so wire is showing, attach it to 12v line?
is that how I use one of those vampire cutter things?
Or is it simpler?
Ok so I dont have to deal with negative and positive? I can just attach wire to wire?
