07 FX35 Power Outlet question/problem

Postby MrMootsie » Fri Apr 24, 2009 3:17 am

Just got an 07 FX35....what a rocket ship. It's certified pre-owned, so I'm sure they'll fix this, but I thought I may be doing something wrong. The power outlet in the center console drawer works only intermittently. It's the only one, apparently, that works with no key set to ACC. It isn't the cell phone cord, as I tried a few. Has anyone else had this problem? I did do a search, but I found nothing specific to my situation.

thanks,MrM

Hello there Tim,Welcome to Nico

All of the power sockets turn off when the key is off. Although this may seem inconvenient at times the sole reason is to keep a mistakenly plugged in peripheral from discharging your battery. The power sockets differ slightly from normal cigarette lighters in that the internal element is constructed slightly different, meaning that if your charging cable is not making correct contact your device may not work.

If I am misunderstanding what you are saying please feel free to enlighten me.

thanks for the answer, Steve. You correctly understood the problem. It doesn't work with the engine running, now, either. Fuses all check. What typically goes wrong with this? I used a multimeter to test.

That is pretty interesting,

I would take it to the dealer and let them deal with it.

If you checked both sides of the fuses and the power outlet(s) still do not work you may have another issue. It is a very simple circuit.

it goes into the shop for a few things on Thursday. I spoke with my local Infiniti wrench. When I described the problem to him, his first question was, "do you have a Verizon phone and adapter?". Why yes....yes, I do. Apparently, this is a problem endemic to Verizon adapters. It is, indeed, a fuse thing. If I get a resolution, I'll post it.

Best,Tim
