    Hi,

    I have a question regarding the radio. Whenever I'm waiting for someone the radio goes off after a couple of minutes. It's not a big deal for the moment, but let's say I go to a drive-in theatre what do I do? Keep the car on or there is a special thing a should do?
    Thanks in advance
     
  2. I believe you need to push the ON button without depressing the brake. That will put the car into Accessory mode and will allow you to run any accessories you want. You will however get continuous warnings that you are running down the battery.
     
  3. Why not just put it in run mode with the e-brake on, that way no lights and no 12V battery drain

    That's what utility mode is for, there's a menu for it.

  6. Exactly, keeps the 12V battery charged through the high voltage pack as well.

    Hi,

    Thanks for the info, utility mode is the way to go.
    For people that don't know, it will use the high voltage battery instead of the 12v battery for climate, usb and radio.
    In this mode you cannot release the parking break or put the car in gear.
    So it's basically having the car on with the day running lights off.
    Thanks again for the answers

    Ha ha ha here in the province of BC we don't have any "drive-in theaters" so for us there's no problem at all. But I do wish we still had some Drive-in's

    Yes I think that Twilight Drive In movie is still popular with locals.
