My cigarette power outlets continue supplying power after I turn off my car. How do I make them turn off after I turn off my car. My Bluetooth accessories don’t work unless power is cut when I turn off my car.

My car has 80000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Your power points are supplied direct battery through fuses 3 and 15 in the battery junction box. You would need to alter the wiring of them to have them switched power.
