Hi all, long time forum viewer, first time poster. I am wondering if anyone knows how to make the cigarette lighter power stay on even when the car is turned off in a 2003 C240. I have seen some forum posts regarding this in the E-class, but I am not sure if the idea is the same in my car. Can anyone point me to some documentation or have knowledge of this?
Thanks in advance

As cars vary you need to take a meter & find a tap in the fusebox that has a wire going to it as fat as the one going to the cig lighter & make sure it does not go to sleep with the CANBUS. Then run a new wire from there to the cig lighter. This requires some careful stripping of the dash & console to feed a new wire.
If your car was prewired for a cell phone then the wiring will be there already at the side of the console. Only Benz can tell you from your VIN whether the car is prewired.
