Installing a 12v cigarette lighter?

I bought a cigarette lighter for my FC since it had an antenna switch in its place and I need it to charge navigation systems and everything. I have no idea what to connect to what so what do I do?

There's also a blue wire with the metal piece at the end for the power antenna

you ground the quick connect on the side, and the red wire you put to 12V and slide it onto the lighter, will probably have to cut the spade terminal off you wont be able to use it.

if you mean where in your car then get out a test light and start probing

once you let the smoke out it will not work any longer, you will need new smoke
