Q: How do I use the power outlets?

How do I use the power outlets?

Using the power outlets is simple. First, remove the cover from the power outlet that you wish to use. Second, plug your device into the power outlet. Finally, turn on the vehicle (you can turn on the vehicle first, and plug your device in second). The engine does not need to be on for the power outlets to work, but the ignition needs to be turned to On/Run or Acc/Accessory. After turning the vehicle off, the power outlets will continue to work for 10 minutes, or until you open the driver’s door.
