I may have misspoke on the cigarette lighter. I connected the lights to the switched aux power source (thought that one was the cig lighter, the one on the left. It comes on with the ignition as my radar detector is only on with the car being on.
The aux power outlet on the right is constant, as that's what I connect my phone to to charge when I leave it in the Jeep.
Sorry for the miscommunication. Going to try the constant 12v outlet today to see if that makes a difference.
