Just purchased my new '04 SSR. The book states the Auxiliary Plug-Ins will shut off ten minutes after the vehicle is shut off. However, when I leave my radar detector plugged in, it stays on all the time even when the vehicle is shut off. Does any one else have this problem or do I have defective Plug-Ins? Or am I reading the book wrong? Thanks for any help you can give me. Mason :confused

Mine does the same thing. I use mine for my cell phone and it stays on the whole time. I really like that because I might leave my cell in the truck when I am in the store if the battery is low.

Plug-ins

The problem I have is. If I leave it pluged in over night the battery may go flat. Does anyone read the owners book like I do that it should cut the power after the key is turned off after 10 mins.
Thanks, Mason :confused

Aux Plugs

Unless you have your house plugged into the truck, theres no way you can runn down the battery. I have an aux radion plugged in and running 24-7 and as long as I star the trck every two or three days, no problem. I have also found other discrepencies in the owners manual.

Battery run down

I can't leave a radar detector plugged in while I am on business trips that last over a week, when I return the battery is completely dead.

I have never had this problem in any other vehicle before. I don't have anything to leave plugged into the SSR for any lenght of time. I wouldn't think this is right. There is so little pull from any plug in unit. I don't see how it could drain the battery.

hmmm...

I have a 12v charger for my cordless drill and lights, I keep it plugged in all the time. In my last work vehicle (01 caravan... wow) I Had to be careful to keep the doors closed, not play the radio without the engine running, or it would run down even with constant everyday use.
I'm sure the ssR has a better (truck) charging system than a caravan, but I'll still watch my battery.
