Optimate

Postby AndyGFLees » Mon Nov 27, 2017 9:28 pm

Hi,

Does anyone know if you can use the 12v "cigarette lighter" outlet on the Tracer with an Optimate battery charger, instead of connecting the leads provided?

Thanks,

Don't think so you can do this on canbus bmw systems but wouldn't risk it on Tracer.

The cigarette lighter socket fitted as standard will be wired through the ignition circuit and is not live without the ignition switched on. That was the case with my last Yamaha as well (Super Tenere).
It must be wired directly across the battery with a fuse. Arrange it so you have a flying lead that can be accessed by removing the rear seat. I plug mine in every time I put it in the garage.
