The other day I noticed that the accessory power remained on with the key out of the iginition. It normally turns off when I open the driver side door but this time I was in the passenger seat. The power remained on when I got out of the car on the passenger side. Anybody know how long it might stay on? I would think that with radio/nav on there could be a substantial battery drain unless it times out and turns off.

OOP's I didn't word that right! The radio/nav stays on not the power outlets, they are always hot like you said.

The feature you are refering to is Retained Accessory Power (RAP). Items like radio, windows, etc.. stay powered up after vehicle shutdown until the doors are open. I noticed on my GMT900 Denali that only the drivers door will deactivate RAP. I'm pretty sure previous models deactivated w/ any door opening. Apparently the Acadia is like mine as well.

As for your question, typical RAP "on-time" is 10 minutes.
