(Z4) 12v power outlet questions
i searched all over the car, does the car only have 1 12v outlet?
so i slapped on my garmin gps and the power still goes to the gps even when the car is turned OFF and with the key removed!
it doesnt happen in other cars...
is this normal? i have to unplug the garmin from the 12v everytime i finish driving?
I ended up with two added on the passenger side connected with the stock one.
What I did is remove the ashtray, remove the screw under it. Then lift the unit up & back the whole thing comes out in one unit.
There are three connectors attached to this, you want the largest (brown) one.
Peel back the wire covering & locate the purple & white wire. This is hot when the switch is on. Use the ground from the cigg lighter.
I fished the wires into the glove (something,on this car that is basically useless) I have the xm & extra outlet there.
I only listen to one station on xm so I don't need to see it or have it within reach. If you do then bring the wires out at a different location as fits your needs.
