Cigarette lighter wiring

Hi, I just bought a new cigarette lighter as my old one was broke. The new one comes with an illuminated ring with seperate wiring to the actual lighter. My question is where should i wire the positive and negative wires so that it only illuminates when the lights are on?

I changed mine also to a illuminated one, when you disconnect the old one make sure that you put the live 12v+ back onto the middle connection and the negative to the side connection,with mine thoe I had to make the hole bigger.

The terminals are set at 90 degrees to each other so the power for the lighter itself is straight forward but the wires for the led are seperate, and i only want them to come on with the lights. Is this how your was?

The lighter only comes live when ignition on/Car running so all you have to do is connect the 12v live (possibly red) for the led to the 12v power for the lighter and same for the negative (possibly black) to the negative side for the lighter.
So when you have done this your lighter and the led/light will work when the ignition is switched on.
I know that you wanted it separately but that's the easiest way and you will not really notice it being on.

Lighter is a switched power anyway so just wire that bad boy up in parallel to the lighter connection!

Edit: Beaten to it

Yeah, I knew I could wire in parallel and have it on with ignition. Just thought about having it come on with the lights. Thanks for the help though
