Power when off

Fri Oct 06, 2017 12:23 pm

I was wondering if there is a way to get power in my 2017 Soul EV while the car is off. I am able to do it in my Buick, but not with the Soul.

No.

12v ACID battery required a complet shutdown function (include ambient light & GPS cluster after 3~5 minutes).

So there is no way to tap into the 27kw battery?

I am looking to install a dashcam that requires access to power while the car is parked.

Use a powerbank USB instead (8x 18650 = 28Ah) .

it can charge when the car is ON ... during the drive.

and no, the High-tension battery are only ON (high power contactor for the 400v DC) with key inside the car.
