    Open the hood, remove the fuse box cover, look for the two fuses. Choose a fuse, or both remove it, move over to the left or right one peg. You'll see what I mean.

Heck, that might even be just exactly like a RAP. Where the opening of the door turns it off. Best part, is that you could control the front from separate from the rear one.


    I know that ya'll would like "duh" just like I was a minute ago when I thought of those fuses.

    ^true except for the part about opening the door. Even after you open the door, close it, lock the doors and engage the alarm; RAP stays active for 10 minutes after you turn off the ignition. No matter what. Only the radio shuts off when you open the door.

    that is why devices that store settings (like my parrot kit) also use a constant 12v+ lead.

    I tried that in my 05 cts, i even added the extra relay needed. When i put the fuses in the altenate slots the cigarette lighters did not work at all. Could there have been something i did wrong or does it not work for all models.

    If it didn't work for you, it is hard to say. Are you sure you moved the fuses correctly?

    Yes, i switched the positions to the alternate slot. They just went dead. Could ther be a wire in the dic harness i could use since it still functions properly.
