Default Need cigarette lighter not to go off with the ignition switch!

Is there a way to have the cigarette lighter supply voltage at all
times, without splicing into a hot wire. I need to have the GPS
recharge while the ignition is turned off. The vehicle is a 2004 Town
and Country. Many thanks

This is from the 2004 Town an Country owners manual:


ELECTRICAL POWER OUTLETS - IF EQUIPPED

To the left of the instrument panel cup holder are two 12

volt power outlets. The upper outlet is controlled by the

ignition switch and the lower outlet is connected directly

to the battery. The upper outlet will also operate a

conventional cigar lighter unit (if equipped with an

optional Smoker's Package).

A third outlet is located on the driver's side, just to the

rear of the sliding door and is also controlled by the

ignition switch. The lower and rear outlets will not

accommodate a conventional cigar lighter unit.

I only have one on the dash and it is switched off with the ignition
switch. I have not located a second connector that is hot. Guess I
could splice into a hot wire, but would like to do it by the book if
possible. It said in my owners manual that Chrysler could convert it
to be hot all the time, but who wants to pay for what should be a
simple task. many thanks, Everett

check your owners manual for any information. sometimes they put in a slot
for an additional fuse in the fuse block under the hood.

Since we're top-posting...

On the '96-00, always-on 12V dash outlet is facilitated by installing a
"module" in the engine relay/fuse block.

Internally, it's nothing but a jumper wire.

I was able to find something that was able to make the rear seat
outlet on with the ignition off, but the front outlet is still
controlled by the ignition. I was told earlier by someone here that
there was a setting in the fuse panel to make the outlet on with the
ignition off, but it was in his earlier users manual. I found
reference to changing the fuse position that is located in the upper
right, with reference (ign or bat). You just unplug the fuse that is
in the ign position and plug it into the batt position. I am still
trying to convert the front outlet or find how to install the missing
cigarette lighter.
