    You have to take them all from the ignition barrell. Forget about the blue wire

    From memory every wires black at the barrell so you'll need to test them

    You don't know that the ECU is on the same circuit as the ciggy lighter and if it is you could find alot of things back feeding through a small 20 amp fuse and thin wiring. The same goes for the permament live
