Always-on power sockets?

986 Views 5 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  daoud
Can anyone tell me how, and how difficult it would be to fix the power sockets in my E to where they're on at all times? For me it's a PITA to try and charge my cell phone, for example, unless I'm on a long trip. I'd appreciate any info!

Honda designed them that way to protect you from the Element's puny little battery and electrical system - and yes, it's a real PIA.

Use the search function on the top of the screen and you'll find a bunch of threads covering how to fix it. BTW, I found it easier to put in a couple new sockets than try to change the socket on the dash but the one in the back is a snap and a 2" piece of wire.
