I've got a new (to me) '09 TSX w/Tech and was surprised to find that both of the cigarette lighter power outlets turn off when the car turns off. Is there an easy way to get either of the power sockets to stay on full-time?

What are you trying to hook up?

I might not know a lot about this, but maybe look up diagrams for alarm install. They are hooked up to an always on power source.

Well you can have the outlets on without the engine running but I would think the keys would have to be in the ignition at all times in the "on" position (i.e second click).

In my old car ('01 Audi S4) I had my Sirius Stiletto plugged into the lighter outlet and it had power full time. I had it set to record Howard Stern in 2 hour blocks starting at 6am.

While the built-in XM radio is nice, it doesn't have this "DVR" type feature, that allows me to skip commercials or uninteresting segments.
