    Hot Power Outlet

    I just had my SRX towed to the dealership. It would not crank, the keys were locked in the ignition, and every time I tried to start it the doors would all lock. Turns out just to be a dead battery, which they recharged at no cost.

    The battery has been discharged about 5 times in the year and a half since I bought it, and it has always been when I don't drive it for several days, and leave the radar detector on. I guess I'm too senile to remember to turn it off. It is plugged into the rear power outlet and routed through the door trim to the dash. Unfortunately, the power outlet is hot even with the ignition off, hence the dead battery.

    Does anyone know of a solution where the power outlets can be changed to be hot only when the ignition is on? My service rep did not.

    I tapped into the rear wiper control in the overhead console. It's hot only when in the "run" position.

    I had changed our '04 so it would time out. Had to give the dealer the part number. Need to check the '05 to see if it times out. Seems at one time someone stated that the time out feature was not available on the '06 or '07 but I could be wrong.

    Thanks for the advice. I had not found that thread before, so I will check my manual and take this info to the dealer.

    Re: Hot Power Outlet

    From page 3-23 of '05 manual:

    Power outlets can be set to work all the time or shut off
    10 minutes after the vehicle is turned off. To change
    your setting, see your dealer for a fuse adjustment.
    Certain accessory power plugs may not be compatible
    to the accessory power outlet and could result in
    blown vehicle or adapter fuses. If you experience a
    problem, see your dealer for additional information on
    the accessory power outlets.
    From '04 manual: The accessory power outlet will only operate when the
    ignition is in ACCESSORY or ON and for 10 minutes
    after turning the ignition to OFF. If you would like
    the accessory power outlet to operate regardless of
    ignition position, and for extended periods of time, you
    can do the following:
    1. Open the hood and locate the underhood fuse block.
    2. Find the I/P OUTLET and OUTLET fuses and
    move them over a space, to the open cavity
    next to each fuse.

    Power Outlet Fuse

    Where is the fuse for the rear (trunk) power outlet in a 2006 SRX (6 cyl)?
    I checked the I/P OUTLET & OUTLET fuses, and my instrument panel & center console outlets are fine.
    But no power to the rear outlet in the trunk (passenger side).
