After doing this link mod.. My airbag light is now on.... And goes back off when the link is removed... Is this a side effect or is mine just odd?.
Thanks any body....

Welcome to the site Thumbs Up

Very easy to get the sockets working all the time

Drop down the lower glove box to reveal the fuse box

Remove this relay from fuse box



Put in a link wire ..like this

You will then have permenant power to all 3 aux sockets ( not ciggy lighter ...this still requires ignition on position 1 ) . The 3 sockets are still protected by there original fuses .

I have a GPS speed camera connected to 12v and an iphone charger ..these are on all the time and i can leave my car at the airport for 2 weeks with no ill effects .

Biggest worry is if you leave the ignition on ..this then activates alot of the cars electrics ..this is were people get into trouble ...although i can quite happely leave my car ignition on position 2 for a good 3 hour without any worries .


Was wondering how hard it is to get constant 12v to my sockets!?
So, removing the relay won't cause any problems? And no need to put a fuse in the link wire?
(Sorry, all my electrical "talent" could be listed on the head of an atom!)

Anybody know off hand which relay controls the cig lighter socket, as that's the one I want love all the time. Or is it on a circuit with something else? (Or I will stop being lazy and look at the wiring diagram lol)

Thanks

Pete.

I think The front relay is enclosed in the module, so no easy solution for that.
