Dodge Journey: POWER INVERTER — IF EQUIPPED

Your vehicle may be equipped with a 115 Volt AC (150 Watt maximum) power outlet located on the back of the center console. This outlet can power cellular phones, electronics and other low power devices requiring power up to 150 Watts. Certain high-end video games, such as Playstation3 and XBox360 will exceed this power limit, as will most power tools.

The power inverter is designed with built-in overload protection. If the power rating of 150 Watts is exceeded, the power inverter will automatically shut down. Once the electrical device has been removed from the outlet the inverter should automatically reset. If the power rating exceeds approximately 170 Watts, the power inverter may have to be reset manually. To reset the inverter manually press the power inverter button OFF and ON.

To avoid overloading the circuit, check the power ratings on electrical devices prior to using the inverter.

The control switch for the outlet is located in the switch bank above the climate controls.

Press and release the switch once to turn on the power outlet. A status indicator in the switch will illuminate in approximately one second to indicate that power is available at the outlet. Press and release the switch again to turn off the power outlet. The status indicator will also turn off.

NOTE: Due to built-in overload protection, the power outlet will shut down if the 115 Volt AC (150 Watt maximum) power rating is exceeded.

WARNING:
To avoid serious injury or death: • Do not use a three-prong adaptor.

• Do not insert any objects into the receptacles.

• Do not touch with wet hands.

• Close the lid when not in use.

• If this outlet is mishandled, it may cause an electric shock and failure.
