cigarette lighter socket stays live after the key is removed

I have a IPod fm transmiiter plugged into the drop down cigarette lighter socket. When I remove the key from the ignition the tranmitter stays on taking power from the battery.It is ungainly to unplug and plug it 6 times a day. Does anyone know if the SSR can be changed/programmed to disable the socket when key is removed? All my other cars need to have the key in to use the lighter sockett but they aren't Chevys.

Personally, I think this is a good thing...drives me crazy when in a car that I cannot continue to charge my cell once the key is removed. I would think that if the iPod is fully charged the drain on the battery would be minimal...maybe you could use one of the other outlets so it is easier to take in and out. Just my $.02

Might be cheaper to have a alarm/audio shop install a 12v outlet under the dash and wire it the way you want. I like to have an ignition controlled outlet onboard also

Previous post last year;

"What IS THE 12v POWER OUTLET FOR IN THE BED"?

This is an aux power outlet that is NOT switched off with the power-saver timer. This one is direct to the battery all the time through the "Aux Power 2" fuse (20 amp) in the engine compartment. Page 8-1030 of the 2006 Service Manual.

So, are we to infer the other outlets turn off with the power saver/timer? Or do I have to read the owner's manual to find out?

What are you suggesting?

Install a relay for the power outlet you want to control. Use a "switched" power wire as the drive for the relay and you'll have what you want. There are many circuits that are shut off when the key is "off".

I leave my Garmin powered all the time....if I stop for gas or get a coke or something while driving, the Garmin doesn't have to search for satellites again.

WOW,

I meant when I park it every night in the garage, etc. Short term stops are a no brainer, it's the long term stops I was talking about.

So let's say you're on a trip and have to go to the bathroom....do you take your keys with you? Well if you take them with you then the Garmin would shut off.....

unless I'm missing something here.

I left mine sitting for better than an hour and the device stayed powered , never timed out. But as a 2003 it is an odd duck , maybe the later years are different.

From the Manual:
Battery Run-Down Protection
This feature shuts off all lamps that are left on for
more than 10 minutes when the ignition is off. This
will keep your battery from running down.



To me that sounds like only the lights turn off, and not the lighter/power sockets.

I'm thinking those ignition off powered sockets might be convenient for a wide variety of things. On this vehicle especially, one might be useful to trickle up occasionally/ briefly your battery while in frozen North storage or to power the mobil keg cooler at a midsummer woodsie.
