Non switched 12 volt plug or usb

Recommended Posts

Is there a way to make some or all of the usb ports and/or 12 volt cig plugs hot all the time on my 2018 Suburban?  Having them all go off when the ignition is turned off really is inconvenient.

On the trucks, fuse box under hood, move 50 amp from 10 to 11 for off with key and door open, reverse for hot (factory setting).

On my 2016 Suburban, there is a fuse in the fuse panel that's on the driver's side of the dash that you move from 2 posts to another 2 posts and changes the center power port from part time to constant.  It's the large fuse in the upper rigth corner.  Don't have a pic of it at the moment, sorry.  I think if you google it you'll find it.

My mistake, fuse box on drivers side, and if I am wrong on that one, passengers side. 

 

Pretty sure this time, drivers side like above poster said.

Hi All.

 

Wondering if there was a definite answer on this - Can someone provide pics?

What do I do...Move what fuse from where to where?  Which fusebox?

 

Specifics - doesn't seem to be 100% sure direct and clear advice on this one.

I want constant power on my 12 volt cig lighter in the front center console.

 

I appreciate the help and thank you in advance
