Interior power outlets

Hi, Anyone know what the maximum rated current is for the switched and unswitched power outlets in the dash? Cannot find the relevant fuses myself.
Thanks.

You looked at the PDC under the hood, or the panel under the dash? The owners manual should tell you, where the fuses are, if NOT the current limit for the outlets.

I suspect, its 10amps max current, that is what most 12VDC power sockets are, and I've pulled my dash for a project and judging from the wire gauge going to those outlets, 10 amps looks about right. You'd want to confirm that, I'm guessing.

The one that is hot all the time is considered a cigar lighter! It is rated for 20A. The other 2 are considered power outlets - both rated at 20A. Is this what you wanted?

My power outlet in the rear of the Jeep hasn't worked since I've owned it. I spent one Saturday morning trying to figure out if the fuse had blown, but couldn't figure out which fuse it was. I checked the fuses that I think may pertain to that outlet and they were perfectly fine. Unless I was looking at the wrong fuse, I'm left scratching my head why that dang outlet won't work.

It is located in the fuse panel under the left side of the dash, left of the steering wheel. It is cavity #4, a 20A yellow fuse. Hope this helps you.

Thanks for the location dhh3. I just checked that fuse and it's not blown. I'm sure I can live without it.

I never thought to check the ground at the socket. I'm going to check it out. Is it pretty simple to remove the socket?

Thread hijack a little bit, but mine wasn't working either (I bought my 06 used). Before getting into the nitty gritty and checking fuses and everything, I took out the little cupholder and storage panel there in the back and sure enough it was disconnected. Plugged it back in, works fine.
