Question Powering an external air pump?

Hi folks! I have a question: I have a tire pump that I use mainly to pump up bicycle tires. It needs to be connected to a battery, as the leads have battery clamps. The cord has an in-line fuse as protection. I've used this pump with other cars, but cannot figure out how to get it to work with the Bimmer. I get no power from the positive post under the hood. Does anyone know how to get power from the battery on these cars? Can't find anything in the owner's manual.
I also have a battery maintainer for periods when the car is parked, but it too doesn't work with this car. Maybe the same issue.
Any ideas? The car is a 2017 328d Touring...
Thanks!!
