Retained Accessory Power not long enough

Anybody else not thrilled with the short 45 seconds that the accessory power stays on for after you turn the Liberty off if you don't have the EVIC option? GM vehicles I have owned had it stay on for 10 minutes, similar to the EVIC equipped Libertys, but I don't see why the lesser equipped models can't have the same 10 minutes as the EVIC equipped ones. Anybody know of how to extend the retained accessory power time limit? Thanks.

Yeah it annoys me too. I too had a gm before this and could charge my phone with the vehicle off. Or listen to the radio to finish a song after turning it off. This just sucks with the liberty.

You can move your accessory fuse over to change it to be on all the time. Don't know of a way to make the radio stay on longer however.

I noticed that last night! It isn't on very long at all! I thought maybe I was imagining it, until I seen this thread!

I was told that the fuse for the accessory power point plug is located in a fuse box under the hood. The fuse is a basic two prong style fuse. If you unplug the fuse and move it over one prong location to the side it will make that accessory point a full on 24/7 power point.
Now rather than try to make sense out what I said to do, to take a look at the fuse box and it should make simple common sense....or so I was informed. I learned this two days after installing an extra accessory power point to my Liberty. So I have yet to go move the little fuse...but I will at some point.

So I just went out there and looked. It is correct. Slot M7 has three pins. Move it over one pin, like a jumper, and the accessory stays on 24/7. Awesome. Thanks for pointing this out.

I can also attest!

Now I just need a real good AUX charger (my old one suuuuuuuucked so I used the a/c plug as it charged my phone 5x faster).

Thanks for this!

Look! Pictures!

The first image is the fuse box. Second image notes the location of the handy fuse puller and the fuse in question and where it should be moved. The last image shows it in position.

I hope that helps.

My fingers are too fat and clumsy to do it without a handy tool. LOL
