    Arm Rest USB Charging Port

    This charging port shuts down each time you turn the key off but the thing that bugs me is that it does not turn back on (even though the key is turned back on) until you unplug the cable and plug it back in!

    WHY! WHY! WHY!


    LoL!

    That is actually not a charging port, but for a USB memory stick, or even hard drive, for playing music on your radio. It will charge your phone. It shuts off when the radio shuts off.

    EDIT: I am not sure if you are pointing to the USB port on the left or, as on mine, the cigarette lighter plug on the right. On mine, as Crash stated, the cigarette lighter plug can be changed from KEY to Always on.

    The 12V outlet on the back of the center console can be changed so it stays on all the time, regardless of key position.
    Change the fuse under the hood F91 to F90
    Plug your charger in there

    The picture actually shows he had his phone plugged into the usb charging port and not the radio usb port.

    I changed my usb charging port out for a dual port instead of a single. It stays on at all times even without the key.

    Exactly...I'm interested in the dual USB setup!

    Edit....I believe this is the socket that was used. I'm concerned that if this socket stays powered on even with the key off, that there could eventually be a drain on the battery due to the lighting around the charging ports.
