Cigarette plug's electricity will not disconnect automatically

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, I have a 02 996 TT, my cigarette plug connects to my radar detector. When I turn my car off and lock the doors with the factory alarm, the radar detector won't turn off automatically even after few hours (cigarette plug still have power), so I need to manually turn it off myself each time. Do you know how to fix this? thx :rolleyes:

It is not broken to fix and is by design, one of the advantages is to use the trickle battery charger. Hard wiring the detector into the fuse panel will resolve this.

Not much help, but this is how it is.

The power connection behind the center stack has a switched +12V, an unswitched +12V and a ground. (Also a mute)

I did the hard wire of the switched power to my radar detector and put a BMW plug in the lighter for when my battery maintainer is not connected.

Thank you for the link. Mine was connected to the constant power on. No more low/dead battery leaving the radar detector on.
