I'm a new owner of a 2016 X3 iDrive28i . Love it. Strange problem though.

So I'm connecting a parrot kit to my e92 (2009), I have all the required cable etc including a ignition sensor. What I need to do is splice into the 12v cable on the cig lighter as it controlled by the ignition and wire this up to the ignition sensor. I've never done this before, pretty new to...

None of them work properly, the lighter gets hot, however, I need to hold it all the time, meaning I need to have my finger pressed at the lighter button the whole time. Here's a video of what's happening:
