Thanks for your response. My mechanic was not that specific but it would be a good guess that you are right. If the obd2 draws its power from the fried wire going to the cigarette lighter that would make a lot less ridiculous than connecting some other part of the system to a cigarette lighter. Also, I see an orange wire attached to the obd2 which is the same color as the fried wire if that has any significance.
Next question: I have not been able to trace this wire back to the junction with the fired wire, can I assume that this orange wire is for the power source and what and where would work best to make a new connection for power?
