Hey, guys. My previous vehicle was a fully loaded I was wondering if anyone has modded their power outlet to supply power when the ignition is turned off. Just kinda bums me out that I have to keep a wall charger in my dash cubby if I want to charge my phone at work.

You could just add another outlet and power it straight from the battery. A guy on the yahoo Scion group added an outlet to that knockout hole on the passenger side cubby hole. He used an outlet from a ATV, its a lot shorter so it can fit in the space. I've been thinking of doing that myself but I can't bring myself to pay $20 for the outlet.

Yeah....the only thing is that I'm a complete electrical pansy ass. I'm scared to death to mess with wiriing. I really want to do the side-marker rewire,too. I'm just scared I'm gonna mess things up. I've spent too much money on my car to mess it up. In 4 months I've made $1,300 in payments and almost a grand in add ons with more ebay auctions ending in the next day or two. If someone has done either of these suggestions and could show me some pics maybe I could risk it.:(

just wire the cigarrete lighter to the battery, that will solve your problem right there. just make sure to use a fuse. The whole job would take no more than 10-15 minutes depending on your experience. Id do it for ya for free, but your a bit far for me ;)
