In my 300C there is a plug in the center console that doesn't turn off,
check and see if you have a plug in yours.

I found that it seemed like my fuse block was set up to make that
change but when I switched the fuse to the alternate position the cig
liter still went on and off with the ignition.

I used a couple of fuse taps or "add-a-circuit' devices as they are sometimes called. They are available for any of the different fuse types commonly used.

The first one is inserted into a constantly powered fuse location and the second one is inserted in reverse configuration into the "cigarette" power outlet fuse location. Joining the output wires of the fuse taps completes the task.
