One thing I really dislike about my shiny new 06 FXT MT is the fact that the cigarette lighter outlet is tied to the ignition key. Turn the car off, the outlets are off. Or, when you're getting to a Shiny New Clutch, stall the engine, and the outlets get vampired to death by the starter motor. In the front of the car, these power interruptions make my Garmin Streetpilot 2720 go through a power cycle/reboot. I haven't tried it yet, but I suspect that I'm not going to be able to use my 12 volt "flashlight" unless the key is switched on.
Has anyone tried rerouting the feeds for these outlets to bypass the ignition key requirement?
