    Hi, I now have my SOT cable, Does anyone know where there is a ignition switched power supply in the rear of the A6 ?
    It will save me allot of time trying to find one if someone else already has .


    Many Thanks

    Are you sure? I am pretty certain that on my (facelift) C6 Avant all of the 12v sockets were switched they certainly are on the C7. Though if your car is pre-facelift then it may be one of the things they changed

    Switched sockets in Audi are a recent thing, previously they were always perm live.

    get a caravan charge relay
    like this
    [​IMG]

    wire it to the battery via a fuse or double it off the 12v socket feed,
    it only switches on when the engine is running and making good volts

    i ran one in my passat to charge my 2nd battery :)
