2019 Ascent Touring (CWP)
Keep in mind that with many current generation vehicles, removing power from the multitude of vehicle computers can have an impact on their programming if it's for longer than a few minutes. It would be a good idea to check with a vehicle manufacturer to ascertain the implication of removing power like that before actually putting this setup in action.I have something like this on my other car that has a weird electrical issue that drains my battery (under $20). If I know that car is going to sit for more than a day, I pull the "knife switch" up and it prevents any battery drain due to electrical components. Super easy to install if you're comfortable with a wrench and it gives me piece of mind that my battery won't be dead if I'm in a remote area. I am not minimizing your frustration and stress from this issue and the fact that there should be some way that Subaru fix this and retain the safety features but trying to suggest a solution so that you can enjoy the hatch open when camping and feel confident that your car will start when you need it too. I also have a portable jumpstarter, but this is a LOT cheaper. Best of luck!
