Status indication



Steady green light

The socket is delivering current to a connected device.


Blinking orange light

The temperature of the socket's voltage converter is too high (because for example the accessory draws too high a current or the passenger compartment is too warm).

Remove the plug and let the voltage converter cool down before reinserting the plug.

The connected accessory draws too much current (intermittently or continuously) or is defective.

None. The accessory cannot be connected to the socket.

Extinguished lamp

The socket does not sense that a plug has been inserted.

Check that the plug is properly inserted into the socket.

The socket is not active.

Switch the car's electrical system to the lowest ignition position I.

The socket has been active but is now deactivated.

Start the engine and/or charge the starter battery.
