The accessory power outlets can be used to plug in electrical equipment, such as a cell phone or MP3 player.

There are two accessory power outlets. One is located under the armrest inside the center console storage and the other is on the rear of the center floor console.

The outlet is powered when the ignition is in ON/RUN or ACC/ACCESSORY, or until the driver door is opened within 10 minutes of turning off the vehicle. See Retained Accessory Power (RAP).

Open the protective cover to use the accessory power outlet.

Certain electrical accessories may not be compatible with the accessory power outlet and could overload vehicle or adapter fuses.

If there is a problem, see your dealer.

When adding electrical equipment, be sure to follow the installation instructions included with the equipment. See Add-On Electrical Equipment.

The power outlet is located on the rear of the center console.

An indicator light on the outlet comes on when in use. The light comes on when the ignition is in ON/RUN, equipment requiring less than 150 watts is plugged into the outlet, and no system fault is detected.

The indicator light on the outlet will not turn on if the plug is not fully seated.

If you try to connect equipment using more than 150 watts or a system fault is detected, the equipment may operate for a short period and turn itself off.

A protection circuit shuts off the power supply and the indicator light turns off. To reset the circuit, unplug the item and plug it back in or turn the Remote Accessory Power (RAP) off and then back on. See Retained Accessory Power (RAP). Prolonged usage of the power outlet at the maximum load of 150 watts may cause the outlet to overheat and automatically shut down. The power restarts when equipment that operates within the limit is plugged into the outlet and a system fault is not detected.

The power outlet is not designed for the following equipment, and may not work properly if any of the following is plugged in:

• Equipment with high initial peak wattage such as:

compressor-driven refrigerators and electric power tools.

• Other equipment requiring an extremely stable power supply such as:

microcomputer-controlled electric blankets, touch sensor lamps, etc.
