USB sockets Swift Rio 325

We've bought a 2017 Rio and so far, so good. I'm not sure if it possible, but can the USB sockets be made to work all the time, not just with the ignition on please?

hi and welcome phil

i am sure a little wiring mod would allow this but my only problem would be that the socket would also run the motor battery down over time and the later vans are not the best for the battery holding its charge for a long time

unless you have solar or leave it on hookup to keeps both batteries topped up

are you talking about usb in the dash this if so this should be able to be connected to the permanent live behind the radio

Simple answer to your question yes it can be done.

If you are unsure of how to do it yourself get a professional in, itís not a difficult job.

Out of interest do you mean the cab socket(s) or the ones in the habitation area. If the later they should only be ďliveĒ when the engine isnít running!


Its not the destination that matters.

It's who you share the journey with (even if like me, itís in a caravan!)
I am very fortunate to have Mrs Plodd to share mine with
