This is a fine question. Background: I have read some new imports do not have power full time to the socket.
My installation: Camping World Nashville, TN. My installer knew the equipment but I am unsure how well he knew the Fit. Tested EvenBrake at end of installation and installer found no power. It cost me another $50 in change that wiring. Was it really necessary? I can't say.
Honda manual says to put the ignition in the Accessory I position for the tow. Now that my car has been modified I cannot test your question to give an answer.
Again, as I had read some imports do not have power to the 12 volt plug all the time, I was not surprised when the installer said we had a problem.
