I have a 2005 Dodge Dakota SLT, and when left overnight or for more than a few hours

Quick question. Did you install an aftermarket nav system? Does it stay on all the time? Did you install any other aftermarket electronics? Do they stay on all the time? Do you leave any thing plugged into the cigarette lighter?
