Volvo XC90: Loading, storage and passenger compartment / Using the electrical outlets

The 12 V outlet can be used for devices intended for this such as MP3 players, coolers and cellular phones.

The ignition must be in at least mode I for the outlets to supply current. The outlets will then be active as long as there is sufficient charge in the start battery.

If the engine is turned off and the vehicle is locked, the outlets will be deactivated. If the engine is turned off and the vehicle remains unlocked, the sockets will remain active for up to 7 minutes.

NOTE

Bear in mind that using the electrical outlets when the engine is off could cause the starter battery to have too low of a charge level, which could limit other functionality.

Accessories connected to the electrical outlets can be activated even when the vehicle electrical system is off or if preconditioning is used. For this reason, disconnect plugs when they are not in use to prevent the starter battery from becoming discharged.

WARNING

  • Do not use accessories with large or heavy plugs – they could damage the outlet or come loose while you are driving.
  • Do not use accessories that could cause disruptions to e.g. the vehicle's radio receiver or electrical system.
  • Position the accessory so that there is no risk of it injuring the driver or passengers in the event of heavy braking or a collision.
  • Pay attention to connected accessories as they can generate heat that could burn passengers or the interior.

Using 12 V outlets

  1. Remove the stopper (tunnel console) or fold down the cover (trunk/cargo compartment) over the socket and plug in the device.
  2. Unplug the device and put the stopper back in (tunnel console) or fold up the cover (trunk/cargo compartment) when the socket is not in use or left unattended.

CAUTION

The maximum power is 120 W (10 A) per outlet.
