I purchased an illuminated gear knob for my E39 - after finding out what the positive cable was on the knob (cables are brown and green for some reason) i went to wire it into the car.
According to the manuals you tap into the cig lighter wiring using a set of two scotchlocks. When i got the gear gaiter and foam ring out the way i found 3 cables going to the cig lighter.
Does anyone know what cable is what ? There are no markings on them or clues on the plug they go into.
Alternatively any other way to wire it in ? I was wondering if you could get a multi connection plug so i could just wire it into that along with the cig lighter and plug both into the socket.
