Could someone tell me (if possible) which wire is the switched live on a 2003 W209? I have pulled out the dash and I am trying to use the ciggy lighter wiring, but they are not standard colours (Ie, was looking for a yellow wire).

It's really annoying me :confused:


Thanks :D

If you have the cigar lighter out,, do you have a 3 pin socket where the lead to it plugs in

I have one here and I will go into the workshop and check on what pin is what, and post back

With the socket facing you and the 1 pin at the top and 2 pins below , the right hand pin is the live. the left pin is ground and the top pin the lamp

Standard colours?? What do you mean:confused:
What makes you think it should be yellow?

Got a feeling it could be black with a yellow tracer

All after market systems have red as perm live and yellow as the switched. Guess that is where he was coming from....
