    Cigarette outlet always on?

    I noticed that when the car is parked, key not in the ignition, the cigarette outlet will still run power along with the ashtray light on.

    Will it always run if I leave something plugged in? Or does it cut off power after 5 minutes or I lock the doors via the fob?

    Thanks for any insight.

    The light will cut off, but the actual 12v outlet is powered on at all times.
    My Radar Detector is plugged into mine and I have to remember to turn the detector OFF if the car is going to be parked for more than a week.
    The one under the drivers seat is always powered up also.

    Maybe ........... In some models, in the underhood fuse box, the two 12V power outlets (cigarette lighter sockets) have 2-position fuses. In one position the outlets turn off with RAP. In the other position the outlets are hot at all times. The fuse legend is on the sticker in the fuse box cover.
