Do you keep your tazer in the OBD at all times, like even after turning off your car, locking it, and going away from it. I heard somewhere that it will cause the battery to die if u keep it plugged in 24/7.

No, once it has been programmed you can leave it out. From what I understand (I have never tried) you need to have it it for the light show. I like it for the SRT pages and some of the other little gizmos.

I keep it plugged in all the time for the live functions such as keeping the engine in track mode so i can keep the active exhaust fully open at all times even when i keep my transmission in street mode.

You can leave it plugged in all the time, I do.
My gauge cluster has also failed to go to sleep a few times and I'm on my 3rd battery now. Is it related? :unsure:

Might not be a bad idea to just unplug it when you park and plug it back in when you start your car. YMMV.

yeah thats what i noticed, one time i sat in my car turned off for like 1-2 hours idk im not sure but every like 30 minutes the gauge cluster kept coming on randomly so i unplugged the tazer from the OBD and that stopped happening. Thats why i wonder if i leave the tazer in the OBD all night with my car turned off, will the gauge cluster keep coming on and eventually kill my battery?

If the Tazer is waking up one of the car's control modules and causing unnecessary battery drain, it's going to be due to a software issue with the device's firmware. Make sure you have the latest firmware installed, and if that does not resolve it, contact the ZAutomotive support folks and let them know. If it's a legitimate bug, a patched firmware can be put out, installed, and the problem resolved.

The first edition Trinity had the same problem, and after people let DiabloSport know, they issued a firmware fix that stopped the behavior from happening. It's a pretty straightforward fix, but they will need to know there is a problem before they can fix it.
