Auxiliary power

Is there any way to make the auxiliary power turn off with the radio? I was thinking about re-wiring one of the plugs under the radio to tap into the radio power. This is for an 8th gen, 2013 to be exact. If this has been covered I do apologize, I tried searching for it with no avail.

Well if that was an issue that I wanted to turn on and off. I would wire in with a Relay... You will need to pull in a ACC sadly the radio don't have one, it is done with data buss... I will post what I would do with my car.

What is needed.
4 Pin Relay. 85, 86, 30 and 87 would be the numbers.
4 Insulated Female Spade connectors
1 Ring Terminal connector
Mini Fuse Tap
1 Stinger Self Tapping screw
Good Crimping tool
Good Stripping tool
Test light
Cordless drill
3-5 foot of Black wire (Ground)
5-10 foot of Red wire (+12V)
Section of sticky 3M Velcro

I would Cut the Red/White wire that is going to the Aux Plugs (AKA Cigarette Lighter sockets). Strip the end on both wires that were cut being careful to not short out the live wire, Crimp on one of the Female Spade Connectors on both side. Connect one end to #30 and the other end to #87 on the relay. Strip the end of black wire, crimp on Female Spade connector, Connect to 86, and run the wire away from area in a way to not be seen to a spot where there are other grounds connected. Cut wire to length, strip wire on that end and put in a Ring terminal on that end. Take cordless drill and stinger screw and make ground connection. With Test light in the Fuse box look for fuse that is hot when I turn on the Ign switch to Acc and also on. Once found turn key off use Mini Fuse tap and make connection, Take red wire, strip end and connect to Mini fuse tap pigtail. Run wire to relay location and cut wire, strip off end, crimp on Female Spade connector and connect to Pin 85. Take some Velcro to cover side of Relay, connect other side of velcro to location out of way.

Turn on Key and power to your Aux is working.... Once you turn off your key your Aux plugs turn off...

Again this is what I would do, If I was worried about anything I might tape the ends that I crimped and connected to the relay but most times I wouldn't need to...

Hope this Helps

I thought I might want to say... You would be cutting the Red/White wire and when I say strip the 2 ends only mean one end from right half and one end of the left half not that your cutting 2 wires... Sorry i wanted to be clear...

as When I re Read it, I almost thought I was talking about 2 wires that was cut, lol and I wrote it....
