cigarette socket question

Hi Guys,

on my 2000 S my cigarette socket is switched, in other words it goes off when turning the ignition off. Has anyone else had this problem? From what I can read, it should be on all the time. I want to use to plug my charger into. Think the only way is to hard wire it?

Your socket should not be switched (turned on or off by the ignition); if it is, someone rewired it. The OEM "always on" configuration was specifically so you can plug in a maintainer....................
