I've not got access to my wiring diagrams to check at the moment but I'd guess it's on of the ones in the under bonnet fuse box. Removal of the dashboard dimmer switch/short bar plug doesn't give the same symptoms does it?

Does the TNS relay not control all of those circuits? Are the number plate lamps not working either?

Are you sure that it isn't an iPhone cable? Some NCs did have them.

Yes, may need a hole or 2 drilling. I’d double check about the style bar if there is one though.

Shouldn’t be a problem, I’d wire it to the cigar lighter socket wiring.

Is the OPs description not of a flat spot rather than cutting out? I’d start by suspecting a MAF sensor fault. Generally, trying a known good unit is the best way to confirm or rule out a MAF sensor fault.
