Power Outlets

The vehicle has 12-volt outlets that can be used to plug in electrical equipment, such as a cell phone or MP3 player.

The power outlets are located on the instrument panel below the climate controls, inside the center floor console, at the rear of the center console, and in the rear cargo area. Lift the cover to access the outlet and replace when not in use.

WARNING
Power is always supplied to the outlets. Do not leave electrical equipment plugged in when the vehicle is not in use because the vehicle could catch fire and cause injury or death.

Notice: Leaving electrical equipment plugged in for an extended period of time while the vehicle is off will drain the battery. Always unplug electrical equipment when not in use and do not plug in equipment that exceeds the maximum 20 ampere rating.

Certain accessory plugs may not be compatible with the accessory power outlet and could overload vehicle and adapter fuses. If a problem is experienced, see your dealer.

When adding electrical equipment, be sure to follow the proper installation instructions included with the equipment. See Add-On Electrical Equipment on page 9‑53.

Notice: Hanging heavy equipment from the power outlet can cause damage not covered by the vehicle warranty.

The power outlets are designed for accessory power plugs only, such as cell phone charge cords.
