    Sorry if this has been dealt with before. I have W Reg Zafira and I was
    wondering is it possible to make the cigarette lighter socket in the dash and
    the one in the boot work when the ignition is off.

    The one in teh boot already works with the ignition off, although
    probably for a limited time after ignition key removal, re-wiring the
    dash one would be possible but fiddly.

    Its mainly the one in the boot I am thinking off, as I want to use it for a
    small camping fridge.

    i'd be very carefull about leaving it on too long.
    even 4A that those fridges take will soon make your battery too low to start
    the car if it does not fire withina few tries.
    i find it better to use the socket to charge a sealled battery connected
    directly across it, though a diode inline or one of these caravan charger
    boxes might work better.

    Good point, I think I will have to re think and maybe take a look at one of
    the other methods that you suggested.
