Does anyone have any information on a software upgrade for auto door locking? I'm interested if anyone has had it installed (US) and about how much the upgrade is?<P>Also, this may sound like a dumb question, but I noticed that if I have my cell-phone recharger plugged in when the car is running or when the key is in the I or II position, the recharger is working. But when I turn the car off, it doesn't seem like I'm getting any power from the 12V socket. Is this supposed to be like this?<P>thanks....<P>...dl... <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif">

I recall reading either here or at vspy that someone had it done. It is done in the Vadis software and I think it cost the fellow $45.<P>Start searching the forums <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/biggrin.gif"><P>

Yeah, when I turn off the car, the power of the 12 V outlet goes off. This has happened in every car I've owned so far - Mazda's, Nissan's etc.<P><P>

Really...I guess that it's common for foreign cars. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/frown.gif"> Didn't have that issue with my last car (GMC Jimmy). Guess it's not a big deal but sometimes if I leave my cell phone in the car to recharge.<P>...dl..<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>Originally posted by Calamazoo:<BR><B>Yeah, when I turn off the car, the power of the 12 V outlet goes off.

That's not a bad price at all. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/biggrin.gif"> Think I will get the upgrade when I bring my car in for it's first scheduled maintenance.<P>Thanks.....<P>..dl..<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>Originally posted by Vetteguy:<BR><B>I recall reading either here or at vspy that someone had it done.

The VADIS number at least in Europe is this:<BR>8637412<P>As for the 12v outlet going off when the engine is off, my wife's Explorer did this but my old Honda Accord did not so that blows the Domestic versus Import theory.<P>Pat<P>

This is almost certainly a safety-related issue. You can draw large currents from these 12V receptacles, more than enough to heat the artificial substances in cars to a point where they flash.<P>When I was a kid, a friend of mine pressed and held the cigarette lighter on his dad's car, nearly burning the thing up.

Re: auto door lock

Yannis or anyone else,<p>Did this (auto locking doors) ever become available in the US? If so, do you have the VADIS #? I was in for my 7.5K service today and they told me it doesn't exist.<p>Thanks,<br>Rob
