The wires in the map light are on the same circuit. They all go off with the accessory plugs in 30 minutes. I use them for all accessory powered items. I like it because it keeps my dash cam on for 30 minutes instead of it turning off immediately. Also keeps my screens on and phone chargers. If I'm working at a site the phone will charge the whole time especially if I open the doors before the 30 minutes are up.thanks guys -
are the wires that are in the overhead storage on
a Timed circuit also ???
would like to power it from there -
being on 30 minutes could be ok or Great or not -
I put a polarizing CPL filter on dash cam to remove glare from glass -
It works - its surprising how good it works -
Yes.So, just to be clear if I'm running one of those cup holder inverters that plugs into the 12v cigarette lighter and have a laptop plugged in it will power down in 30 minutes?
I like knowing that what I have plugged in will stay active while I run in a store or something yet not drain the battery when I go in the house overnight. That is why I have my auxiliary panel triggered by the 30 minute circuit which is perfect for most scenarios.It is a stupid design, I ran a 12V socket from the battery to the cargo side of my bulkhead with an inverter so I can charge tools and equipment without loosing power.
does cigarette lighter socket ever turn off ??--
is it on a timer ??-
my radio stays on for about 15 minutes then shuts off-
I am installing a dash cam and need circuit that
powers down at some point in time - Thanks
I have the same issue on mine. This is my first transit and it’s a 2014. I left my GPS plugged into it to test it out and checked on it approximately an hour and a half later and it was still powered up. I pulled the fuse for that socket and it does lose power. So I know it’s wired directly into the proper fuse. Any ideas on what could be keeping this thing on?Mine does not turn off at all. I think my lights do. I had left my GPS unit plugged into the power socket under the radio and when it turned nightfall I noticed a glow out in the van (GPS screen). I think my alarm installer jumped it with a relay by instructions from Viper tech support as my alarm was always going off at the time-out occurrence. It was possibly door sensor related since the alarm always would indicate that zone. I (nor he I am sure) didn't realize at the time that he was defeating my "power save" algorithm. I will try to clarify this with all scenarios when I get up to my shop.
