Live 12v socket.
« on: June 30, 2015, 04:35:43 PM »
Hi again.
Is there anyway I can make the rear 12v socket turn off when engine is off.I have a small fridge in back and worried im going to forget to unplug and have a flat battery.I have looked on line to try and find something with switch on but not had much luck.

The simplest way would be to remove the red wire from fuse 8 extend the wire and connect to a switched live on ignition switch, however I would prefer to run a new cable via a relay so to avoid putting the extra load on the ignition switch contacts.

.I only want the back one if possible to turn off with engine.
How would I go about it
If I could buy a long type of extension which would plug into the back but you could physical see it was on then the kids would remember to turn off.
Any thoughts.
