2011 E150 van, cig lighter question...
my work van is a e150 5.4. i have 2 power points on the dash in it. I have a sirius radio that you can pause and it will store up to 1.75 hours of that station that youre on's programming. so say i get out on a call, and want to hear the game. I pause the radio and i can pick right back up whwere i paused it(baring i was not there more than an hour and 45 mins) and listen all the way back up to real time. or, i can go back and listen to the songs that station played while i was out of the vehicle. kinda like a dvr for radio sorta.
anyhow, it works as long as you dont lose power to the radio. when I shut the vehicle down, all is good, radio stays on no probs. when i crank the vehicle back up, it cuts power to the cig. lighter for just a split second....long enough to reset my gps, sirius radio ect...and they have to start up fresh just like i just plugged them in.
I ran a fused hot lead from the battery and inside the cab, and then a ground and plugged sirius in there...still does the same exact thing...it loses power for a split second and then right back on again. Why does this do this?????
any other vehicle that Ive ever had that has a constant hot cigarrette lighter port never did this. does anyones newer models trucks cars do this? how can I stop it?
