12v power socket query
« on: September 13, 2019, 10:50:52 am »
Both power sockets on my car, power off when the ignition is turned off. I want the one in the center console to stay permanently live.
I've had a look through the manual and I cant see to figure out how to do it.
Any suggestions?

Its a 2010 Mazda 6

This is not an option to do it by clicking on something.

If you ask an auto electrician will probably do it.

But usually in order to keep things running 24x7, you hardwire stuff to the fusebox with all that this means, e.g.
