The blue and red wire is always hot in my car. Anyone else run into this? Even after the map lights go out when the car is off, the wire still has power.

The wire you want is the first/last wire in the blue quick connect. It is red with a blue stripe:
I totally missed this. So after 15 mins or so, it will shut off then?
