Ford Explorer 2020-2021 Owners Manual / Auxiliary Power Points / Auxiliary Power Points

12 Volt 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 volt appliances with a maximum current rating of 15 amps.

Note: If the power supply does not work after you switch the ignition off, switch the ignition on.

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

Note: Do not use the power point over the vehicle capacity of 12 volt DC 180 watts 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 vehicle is not running.
  • Do not leave devices plugged in overnight or when you park your vehicle for extended periods.

USB Port and Power Point Locations

USB Ports and Power Points may be in the following locations:

  • On the lower instrument panel.
  • Inside the center console.
  • On the front of the center console.
  • On the rear of the center console.
  • In the cargo area.
  • On the passenger side floor panel.
  • 3rd row on the quarter trim panels.

Note: Some of the USB ports may not have data transfer capabilities.

Note: Incorrect use of the USB ports can cause damage not covered by the vehicle warranty.

110 Volt AC Power Point

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 150 watt load limit and could result in fire or serious injury.

Note: The power point turns off when you switch off the ignition, when the vehicle is not in accessory mode or when the battery voltage drops below 11 volts.

You can use the power point for electric devices that require up to 150 watts. It is on 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 or the vehicle is in accessory mode.
  • Off: The power point is OFF, the ignition is OFF or the vehicle is not in accessory mode.
  • Flashing: The power point is in fault mode.

Due to the different technologies used on its construction, some devices may exceed the capacity shown on its label when they are initially plugged-in.

The power outlet temporarily turns off power when in fault mode if the device exceeds the 150 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.

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.
