Electrical Outlet Use With Engine Off
Many accessories that can be plugged in draw
power from the vehicle’s battery, even when not
in use (i.e. cellular phones, etc.). Eventually, if
plugged in long enough, the vehicle’s battery will
discharge sufficiently to degrade battery life
and/or prevent engine starting.
Accessories that draw higher power (i.e. coolers,
vacuum cleaners, lights, etc.), will degrade the
battery even more quickly. Only use these inter-
mittently and with greater caution.
After the use of high power draw accessories, or
long periods of the vehicle not being started (with
accessories still plugged in), the vehicle must be
driven a sufficient length of time to allow the
generator to recharge the vehicle’s battery.
The console has two front cup holders, a removable coin
holder, 12 volt power outlet and a front storage tray.
There are three additional cup holders; one is molded in
the center of the console to hold large cups and the others
are in the rear of the console to serve passengers in the
rear seat. The floor console power outlet will also operate
a conventional cigar lighter unit (if equipped with an
optional Smoker’s Package).
