Electrical accessories can be connected to the 12-volt electrical socket.
Electrical sockets are located at the following positions, depending on vehicle equipment:
In the front center console
In the storage compartment in the center console between the front seats at the right in direction of travel
In the rear center console
In the trunk at the left in direction of travel
Connecting charging adapter
The 12-volt plug sockets and the connected electrical accessories work even if the ignition is switched off or the vehicle key is removed. If the engine is not running and the accessories are switched on, the vehicle battery will be discharged. The power supply is interrupted after about 30 minutes to protect the vehicle battery. If the consumer is to be switched on again, the ignition must be switched on once.
The maximum load capacity of 12-volt plug sockets or the cigarette lighter is 20 A provided no other loads are switched on. Do not exceed 10 A per 12-volt electrical socket or cigarette lighter if several consumers are operating simultaneously.
Unshielded devices and equipment can cause interference to radio and TV reception as well as vehicle electronics.
