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?

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?
