The power outlets can be used to charge electronic devices or plug in any accessory with a 12 V if it runs on less than 10 amps. One power outlet is located on the center display in the auxiliary box. Remove the cover to insert the 12 V cable. Another outlet may be located in the auxiliary box in the center console.

Tips

  • To avoid damage, don’t use any accessory that requires more than 10 amps or 12 V.

  • The outlet only works when the engine is turned on or in the accessory mode.
