    alright i am a big fan of sirius radio and i love listening to howard stern. Im a traveling sales guy and i like having a aftermarket sirus radio in my truck because of the ability to pause what your listening to. i go make my sales calls and pause hte radio so when i get in the truck to drive i havnt missed any of the show. the problem is when i turn off the taco it doesnt keep the power running to hte 12v outlets. In my last two silverados the power would stay on the whole time so that way the sirius was always powered and paused. is there anyway to make it so the taco power outslets are always on or to easily wire the sirius so its always got power to it?

    lol, couldn't help myself...


    I would wire it straight to the battery with a small fuse on the wire just for protection. However, with what you're wanting to do it will take some responsibility on your part to turn off the unit when you leave the car and DON'T want it to stay on.

    I honestly don't know since I'm not familiar with the unit you're using. Maybe read the owners manual and see if it's in there?
