    LOL!!! Sorry but that is a great post,, cool! That is know as the cigarette lighter/socket. It is supposed to work when the key is in the on or run position but not with the key off on this car! You most likely have a blown fuse or that socket that you plug stuff into is defective,,,IF your device works in other vehicles that is! You really couldn't have described the trouble in any better way!!!
