I'm going to try trickle charging it through the lighter. The battery is currently clamping everything to about 2V.
Connecting a maintainer to the lighter circuit is not going to be able to pass enough current (read amps) to bring the battery up, the wiring is just too small to handle it. You would be better off connecting another battery via the fuse panel.
