How do I use the power outlets?

Your vehicle has a power outlet on the instrument panel, and, if equipped, in the center console. To use the power outlets, first remove their covers, then plug an electrical device in. The electrical device cannot exceed 12 volts and 10 amps, and will only work when the car is turned on. Tips Make sure that the electrical device you are planning to use is turn off when you initially plug it in.
