    long story short, im wiring subs into my E60 and need to find a SWITCHED live anywhere inside the car? i took one off the headlight switch because when i turn the ignition on the symbols light up and the radio also comes on at the same time which is perfect i wired it all up and worked a treat until i switch the lights on?? most confused about it plenty volts at the plug even when lights are on but think im loosing amps? i need help please have got a full write up of the install but this is the missing link ad help will be great.

    thanks

    Cigarette lighter?

    Otherwise use a multimeter/test light to probe one out. Ignition switch area.....
