I own a 2004 volkswagon golf and i just put a carputer and alpine amp, speakers..etc.... I have a cigarette lighter in the back of the trunk and i was planning on hooking up some external devices with a power inverter back there.. i want to hook up an external hard drive and maybe a playstation... the problem is whenever anything is plugged in, the device is on all the time... for example i plugged in my cell phone car charger and took the key out and locked the car... the LED was still on. i dont want to always go back in the trunk and pull the plug and if i dont my car battery might get drained. I was wondering if there was a way of making the cigarette lighter act as an open switch when the key is out of the igition without rewiring, that anyone know of. i just put everything back 2gether and dont feel like opening it for a while. if you have any questions about my installation i would be glad to answer them. i learned alot from just reading forums so i recommend that to any one trying to an installation like this. this is my first post but have been reading forums about carputers for a while.
No announcement yet.
Cigarette Lighter is always ON
