Auxiliary Power Points

12 Volt DC Power Point


Do not plug optional electrical accessories into the cigar lighter socket. Incorrect use of the lighter can cause damage not covered by your warranty, and can result in fire or serious injury.

Note: Do not insert objects other than an accessory plug into the power point. This will damage the outlet and blow the fuse.

Note: Do not hang any type of accessory or accessory bracket from the plug.

Note: Do not use the power point over the vehicle capacity of 12 volts DC 180 watts or a fuse may blow.

Note: Do not use the power point for operating a cigar lighter element.

Note: Incorrect use of the power point can cause damage not covered by your warranty.

Note: Always keep the power point caps closed when not in use.

Note: The 12 volt power point remains on after you switch off the ignition. Leaving devices plugged in for extended periods of time could result in a dead battery.

Run the engine for full capacity use of the power point. To prevent the battery from running out of charge:

  • Do not use the power point longer than necessary when the engine is not running.
  • Do not leave devices plugged in overnight or when your vehicle is parked for extended periods.


Power points may be found:

  • On the center console.
  • On the rear of the center console.
  • In the luggage compartment.

AC Power Point (If Equipped)


Do not keep electrical devices plugged in the power point whenever the device is not in use. Do not use any extension cord with the power point, since it will defeat the safety protection design. Doing so may cause the power point to overload due to powering multiple devices that can reach beyond the 150 watt load limit and could result in fire or serious injury.

Note: The power point will turn off when the ignition is switched off or the battery voltage drops below 11 volts. Note: Depending on the country for which your vehicle was originally built, the voltage supply will be either 110 volts or 230 volts.

AC Power Point (If Equipped)

The power point is used for powering electrical devices that require up to 150 watt. It is located on the rear of the center console.

When the indicator light, located on the power point, is:

  • On - power point is working, ignition is on and a device is plugged in.
  • Off - power point is off, ignition is off or no device is plugged in.
  • Flashing - power point is in fault mode.

The power outlet temporarily turns off power when in fault mode if the device exceeds the 150 watt limit. Unplug your device and switch the ignition off. Switch the ignition back on, but do not plug your device back in. Let the system cool off and switch the ignition off to reset the fault mode. Switch the ignition back on and make sure the indicator light remains on.

The power point is not designed for electric devices such as:

  • Cathode ray tube type televisions.
  • Motor loads, such as vacuum cleaners, electric saws and other electric power tools, compressor-driven refrigerators, etc.
  • Measuring devices, which process precise data, such as medical equipment, measuring equipment, etc.
  • Other appliances requiring an extremely stable power supply: microcomputer-controlled electric blankets, touch sensor lamps, etc.
