Cigarette lighter always on ?

I use that plug with a USB thingy for charging my phone without connecting to AppleCarplay but it seems like the light on the usb thingy in the plug is always on after I shut the car off.


Does it ever go out ?

Yup dumb question but you guys know the answers. Don’t want to drain the battery.

It does turn off after an hour or two. I would leave my radar detector plugged in and it would stay for awhile but was always off after an hour or so.

This is great if your charging your phone, but have to stop at the store.

The phone will continue to charge without interruptions for the short time your gone.

But will kill power about 1.5 hours later to prevent battery being drained

The exact time (default value) is about 1h 14min and 44 seconds. Can be configured via OBD in the BCM. Check this for details https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...W68/edit#gid=0.

Hope this helps.

That's an oddly specific default time...
