no. you need more amps than that,you'll need a hot wire from somewhere,ground can be body,thats the basic, not the standard

How do you Think I should do that?

...well the lighter supplies enough amperage to glow a wire, good fused, unswitched source.

If you want the LEDs to pulsde to the beat of the music, get a ebay LED sound controller. LED's can be wired to any 12 volt source. They only use milli-amps and you can piggy back them on any fuse in the fuse box.
