Re: 12 volt sockets

hmmm... on a normal euro car they usually only work with the ignition on - however on an alfa/fiat/lancia I think they work all the time. Bit like the side lights (with ignition off) being different

Re: 12 volt sockets

On mine, they only work when the ignition is switched on.

Re: 12 volt sockets

156 only work with ign on.

As said, it varies from car to car. I know Ford Mondeo Estate work all the time, but I think the Mondeo saloon is only with ign on. Don't know if the same pattern goes for the 156 Sportwagon, probably not!
