The instructions for a 2000 from the site below should be pretty close to what you want then....

what are you trying to tap into the cig ligher power for?

there are easier (and safer) ways of doing this. Plug too much in and you can overload the fuse (thus blowing it) and the device may not power up when you want/need it to.
