I'm wanting to add another flashing LED which comes on when the ignition is switched off (alarm led) - where is the easiest place to wire it into?

I was thinking cigar lighter - is the switching on/ off with the ignition?

cheers

If you wanted it to light up when car is locked you would have to wire it to the central locking as the wire becomes live when you lock the car.If you wire it to ignition live the light will come on when you turn ignition on not when you turn it off.

ah - what about if i wire to the stereo loom - wire to a constant live (stereo memory) and to a switched live which will become neutral when stereo is off - would this work?
