Quick Question

I picked up a couple of the auxillary port (cigarette lighters) from a early model 9-5. maybe 2002 car...

The ports I took fomr the salvage yard have a clear plastic reflector around the circumference of the auxillary port. I imagine this is used to LED illumination to find the ports at night.

On the back side of the auxillary port (cigarette lighter) there is a small LED (green). it has its own socket and a male spade off the back. The male spade is connected to a female connector that runs a blue/white wire.

On the bottom of the LED is a copper looking small piece of metal. it appears as if it grounds itself to the cigarette lighter.

Initially, I thought the blue/white wire was for power..

Now that I think on this a bit more, it appears the LED is powered by the socket via the copper tab at the bottom of the LED.

is the blue/white wire for ground? -/0 volts?

am I correct in this thinking?

The reason I ask if the blue/white wire is for ground because when I connect it to power I blow the fuse the auxiliaries are spliced into..

Just wanna get power to the LED.

I don't have access to any 9-5 wire diagrams so was compelled to ask here..
