Auxiliary Power Points Ford F150

12 V DC Power Point

 WARNING: Do not plug optional electrical accessories into the cigar lighter socket. Incorrect use of the cigar lighter can cause damage not covered by the vehicle warranty, and can result in fire or serious injury.

Note: When you switch the ignition on, you can use the socket to power 12 V appliances with a maximum current rating of 20 A20 amps.

Note: Do not plug in any device that supplies power to the vehicle through the power points, this may result in damage to vehicle systems.

Note: Do not hang any accessory from the accessory plug.

Note: Do not use the power point over the vehicle capacity of 12 V DC 240 W or a fuse may blow.

Note: Always keep the power point caps closed when not in use.

Do not insert objects other than an accessory plug into the power point. This damages the power point and may blow the fuse.

Run the vehicle for full capacity use of the power point.

To prevent the battery from running out of charge:

  • Do not use the power point longer than necessary when the engine is off.
  • Do not leave devices plugged in overnight or when you park your vehicle for extended periods.

110 V 400 Watt AC Power Point (If Equipped)

 WARNING: Do not keep electrical devices plugged in the power point whenever the device is not in use. Do not use any extension cord with the 110 volt AC power point, since it will defeat the safety protection design. Doing so may cause the power point to overload due to powering multiple devices that can reach beyond the 400 watt load limit and could result in fire or serious injury.

Note: This feature works only when you have the ignition switched on.

Note: This feature has a maximum output of 400 watts when the vehicle is in park (P).

Note: While in drive (D), the maximum outlet output is 300 watts.

Note: When powering electric devices that require more than 10 watts in vehicles equipped with keyless start, the engine must remain running. If the engine is turned off or you switch the ignition to accessory mode, plugged in devices will not be charged.

You can use the power point for electric devices that require up to 400 watts. It is on the instrument panel, and the rear of the center console.


When the indicator light on the power point is:

  • On: The power point is working, the ignition is on and a device is plugged in.
  • Off: The power point is off, the ignition is off or no device is plugged in.
  • Flashing: The power point is in fault mode.

The power outlet temporarily turns off power when in fault mode if the device exceeds the 400 watt limit. Unplug your device and switch the ignition off. Switch the ignition back on, but do not plug your device back in. Let the system cool off and switch the ignition off to reset the fault mode. Switch the ignition back on and make sure the indicator light remains on.

You can use the 400 watt power outlet for these types of electric devices:

  • Electric hand drills.
  • Rechargeable power tools.
  • Video games.
  • Laptops.
  • Televisions.

Note: Max 400W — when the vehicle is parked and 300W — when the vehicle is driving.

Do not use the power point for certain electric devices, including:

  • Cathode-ray, tube-type televisions.
  • Motor loads, such as vacuum cleaners, electric saws and other electric power tools or compressor-driven refrigerators.
  • Measuring devices, which process precise data, such as medical equipment or measuring equipment.
  • Other appliances requiring an extremely stable power supply such as microcomputer-controlled electric blankets or touch-sensor lamps.


Note: Timed power points remain on for 30 minutes if the vehicle is in accessory mode. If you switch the vehicle off, the timed power points remain on for 75 minutes.

Power points may be in the following locations:

  • On the instrument panel.
  • Inside the center console.
  • On the rear of the center console.
  • In the seat bin.
