Convert dash lighter socket from always on to ignition on?
I just started having a problem with my dash lighter socket. I keep an iPod FM transmitter dock always plugged into that socket, and up until I got an iPhone, I always kept my iPod in it. The past couple mornings my battery has been dead. I took the car to my mechanic and when I left the car I unplugged the dock. They left it overnight and it started just fine. Battery and alternator (both 1.5 years old) are working perfectly. I feel as if its the dock that'* causing the problem. So I was thinking it would be great if I could change the socket from always on to only turning on with the ignition. Has anyone attempted and performed such a task? My mechanic has said it can't be done, but I don't believe him.
Also, new to the forum. Good to be here!
