Dodge Nitro: Electrical power outlet
Your vehicle is equipped with a fused 12 Volt (13 Amp) power outlet. This power outlet is located on the instrument panel, below the climate controls. It has power available when the ignition switch is in the ON or ACC position. Insert the cigar lighter or accessory plug into the outlet for use to ensure proper operation. To preserve the heating element, do not hold the lighter in the heating position.
вЂў To ensure proper operation a MOPAR knob and element must be used.
вЂў Do not exceed the maximum power of 160 Watts (13 Amps) at 12 Volts. If the 160 Watt (13 Amp) power rating is exceeded the fuse protecting the system will need to be replaced.
Front Power Outlet
To avoid serious injury or death:
вЂў Only devices designed for use in this type of outlet should be inserted into any 12 Volt outlet.
вЂў Do not touch with wet hands.
вЂў Close the lid when not in use and while driving the vehicle.
вЂў If this outlet is mishandled, it may cause an electric shock and failure.
вЂў Many accessories that can be plugged in draw power from the vehicleвЂ™s battery, even when not in use (i.e., cellular phones, etc.). Eventually, if plugged in long enough, the vehicleвЂ™s battery will discharge sufficiently to degrade battery life and/or prevent the engine from starting.
вЂў Accessories that draw higher power (i.e., coolers, vacuum cleaners, lights, etc.) will degrade the battery even more quickly. Only use these intermittently and with greater caution.
вЂў 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 alternator to recharge the vehicleвЂ™s battery.
вЂў Power outlets are designed for accessory plugs only. Do not hang any type of accessory or accessory bracket from the plug.
