Continuous power to ACC 12v power receptacle?

Hi all,
I just received a 2015 City Express as my new work vehicle which I love, only one problem, the accessory power receptacle at the bottom of the center stack does not stay powered unless the ignition is on. The owners manual warns against leaving devices plugged in to said outlet when vehicle is off, which leads me to believe this can be changed. I know in some vehicles its as simple as moving the right fuse. Any insight would definitely make my work days easier.

Thank you

My vehicle is a stripped down model no cruise, power locks, blue tooth, or rear power receptacle. (To my knowledge anyway.)

I do not know how to solve your problem but I will comment. The power to the outlet must be controlled by the BCM rather than the ignition. Power to the outlet turns on when you open the door, no ignition key required. I know this because I leave a cell phone in the car plugged in and when I open the door the phones screens lights up and indicates charging. This is on a Nissan NV200 but same vehicle...

Have you by any chance reached out to the dealership as yet? Since it's a vehicle still under warranty there should be no problem in getting them to resolve it as a warranty job.

That's what I was thinking, the dealership should be the first go to, if that doesn't work then Chevy USA, give them a ring. But a good quick solution could be some independent shop.

Garage
Along the same lines...

Anyone know if the cargo area lights can be made to turn on with doors closed?

Seems like there's now way to get power to the back without the key in the ignition or the doors open.

The cargo lamp? This is what I found in the manual about it.

The interior light switch has two
positions and operates in any
ignition switch position.

ON: Turns the interior light on in
any door position. The light turns off
automatically after a period of time
unless the ignition switch is turned
to ACC/ACCESSORY or ON.

OFF: Turns the interior light off and
it will not come on regardless of the
door position.

Hopefully that answer above solved the problem since the ON position allows for it to stay on in any situation.

The ON option should be what you're looking for since any door position should include closed.
