Your cigarette adapter will not supply enough power to your opus, that is Why in the instructions, that you should have recieved in PDF format says to hook it up directly to the battery. You now may have to check your fuses in your fuse box. Shame on you, do not do that again!!! (I'm a teacher...can you tell?)
then attach the red wire from the opus to the battery
then the black wire from the opus to the battery
the yellow wire is the wire that gets attached to 12 volt source (either found under your dash (ACC wire) or you can also find a 12 volt source in your fuse box...you can buy little fuse box a adapters that you crimp one end of you wire to, and then shove it in the fuse box just like a fuse to get that 12 volt. All the opus is doing is using that 12 volt yellow wire to know when to turn all the juice on. So as soon as it detects the 12 volts in the yellow wire, it turns the power on the power supply and powers your motherboard. It needs to have continuos 12 volt power to stay on...if it does not...it will turn off!
follow steps below!
GO to your local auto shop and pick up a 12 volt probe. After you get that you want to find a wire that will light up that 12 volt probe in your crank position of your keys as well as your on position of your key.
man...don't make it any more difficult than it already is!
