Seems that the PHEV is different in this case. My wife discovered that at least the USB outlet in the dash cubby stays powered when the car is off. Useful for charging a phone if you forgot to bring a charger.If the PHEV is wired similarly to the HEV, plugged in accessories cannot run at all with the car turned off - the outlets either time out, or quit when you open the car door after turning the car off.
That's the port I was talking about. The one the connects to the infotainment system. In the PHEV it seems to stay powered all the time. It definitely is powered before i start the car as well. I plug my phone in before starting and the port is live at that point. Don't know if that's triggered by an unlock though. It would be nice if these sorts of details were documented.Out of curiosity, does the USB in front of the shift lever stay powered when you turn off the car and open the door? I don't have the storage port, but my USB does stay on for about 10 minutes after I turn the car off, unless I open the door.
That doesn't sound right to me. I've never seen the traction battery on my PHEV deplete appreciably even after sitting for a couple of weeks. If you are seeing that much discharge of the battery in a couple of days I'd get that looked at ASAP. That's a lot of energy going somewhere it shouldn't be.I have noticed twice now with my brand new 2019 Niro PHEV EX that, after being plugged in and reaching a full charge, when I get in after a few days, the battery is half gone and the notice about the auxiliary battery appears. This time, I plugged it in Sunday afternoon. I know it charged fully (I checked it in my EVO app on my phone) but it was half depleted this morning. Is this normal??? It never happened with my Ford C-Max PHEV and I am not happy about this at all.
