Why didn't you just grab B+ and Gnd from the same place (cig lighter harness)?
Did you do any testing? Check for power at the lighter itself, check the fuse, anything?
Or do you think it's not getting power based on a switch that may or may not work? Are you sure you wired up the switch correctly?
Do you want ignition switched B+, or accessory? The cig lighter is ACC, not IGN. There are a thousand places in the car you could get it from, just need to break out a multimeter.
