Question Switch Able Accessory 12V outlet ?

My 07 Trailblazer LT has two 12V accessory power outlets. Both have power available all the time, even if the key is not in the ignition ? Is this the way they’re supposed to be? I'd like to have at least one switch able with the ignition key for my radar detector. What would it take to make that happen ?

just direct wire your detector into the rar fuse box under the back passenger seat if you want it to turn on and off with the car no switch to disable those sockets when not in the truck. Also what radar detector do you have

Radar Detector is a Passport 8500 X50, best one I've ever owned. It's saved my a$$ more times than I can remember and has paid for it's self many times over again.

I had the same issue with my V-1. I found a guy on ebay who made a direct wire kit that taps into the rear view mirror harness. You push the bare wire into the top of the plug once you determine hot and ground. Only minor annoyance is that it will switch off when you put truck into reverse. I believe this is because the auto dimming mirror shuts off in reverse.
Good luck! Hope this helps.

Re-wired

I just went ahead and did a little wiring in the BCM from an extra fuse position that wasn't used and I'm good to go. 12V ACC (right side is now switch-able with ignition, other 12V ACC is still always on.
