Apparently, M8x10 bolt is the right size for the positive terminal eyelet connection, but what's the proper metal type for this use? Stainless steel for tight fit without corrosion?
I tried my brand-new CTEK MXS 5.0 today, but my 2016 Macan S (June 2015 delivery) DOES automatically power off the cigarette lighter socket after 30 minutes. I did turn the key to acc mode (MFD shows 11.0V; battery low alert), plugged in the powered CTEK cig lighter adapter, then turned off the car. I just got the 32K mi / 4yr service (garage queen), so I'll need to wait another year to have dealer code disable the auto-shutoff...
I'm using alligator clamps for now.
Some people mentioned auto-shutoff at either 15 or 30 minutes, but my 2016 cig lighter socket was powered at 16 minutes.
After turning off the car (from on or acc mode), you have to open/close the DRIVER door to power off dash and brake lights. If you exit via passenger door, car will not shut off, leaving dashboard and brake lights on (for 30 minutes, I assume).
Yorker I’m new to this charging thread having just purchased a 2017 Macan. I’m not clear on what you are referring to about the M8x10 bolt. Are you referring to an attachment to the charging posts under the hood? I was wondering if there is a way to attach Cteck pigtails to these posts other than just using the alligator clips. Thanks
