How to use 115-Volt Power Outlet on Toyota FJ Cruiser

Your vehicle’s 115 volt power outlet can be used to operate electrical appliances. It should be used only when the engine is started.

To use the power outlet, push the main switch located on the instrument panel. To turn the power outlet off, push the switch again.


The color of the indicator light will change according to the maximum available power capacity:

  • A green and yellow indicator light indicates a maximum capacity of 115 volts AC at 400 watts.
  • A yellow indicator light indicates a maximum capacity of 115 volts AC at 100 watts.
  • When the vehicle is being driven, the maximum capacity is always 115 volts AC at 100 watts.

When the vehicle is stationary, the capacity will vary depending on the position of the shift lever.

When the shift lever is in park or neutral, the maximum capacity is 115 volts AC at 400 watts.

When the shift lever is moved to any position other than park or neutral, the maximum capacity is 115 volts AC at 100 watts.

Turning the main switch off and then on again with the shift lever in neutral will restore the maximum capacity to 115 volts AC at 400 watts.
