Seems like the easiest way to fix my problem is to somehow configure the Cigarette Lighter to power OFF when the ignition is OFF, like most other cars. I have a bluetooth accessory that connects to the iphone in order to provide audio playback, and control, through the vehicle AUX in. Works great, but when the car is off, the device is sitting there trying to pair with my phone for hours and hours, draining the battery.
Anyone know of a way to change the Power behavior of the Cigarette Lighter in a 2009 GT S2?

unplug you 12V acc. when you turn off the car? the 12v outlet are constantly On, key in or out. unless you re-wire the outlets to have only power from the key on position. its up to you to decide wich is simpler, unplug or rewire.
edit: "most other cars" uses this same fonctionality of constant power to the 12v. aux. outlets
Yes like Ash said, Run a good size wire from the power of the Cigar lighter (under de radio unit) to the 12v outlet in the arm rest console. we Can try and do a little DIY, but simply put, the center console will have to come out and find wire colors for the 12v / grounds
