The 12-volt power outlets can be used to power electrical devices in your vehicle. Depending on your model, your power outlets may be on the front of the center console, inside the center console compartment, at the rear of the center console, or in the trunk. These power outlets will operate just like standard power outlets, as long as your vehicle is running and the device does not need more than 12 volts.
