12v to 110v Converter doesn't work

I have a new 2014 Jeep GC Laredo. I attempted to use the 110v AC power outlet, for the first time, to operated a CD Player (draws 14 watts). Plugged in CD Player power cord and nothing happened. QUESTION: Is there a switch or something which needs to be activated prior to using the 110v power outlet, or do I have a bad DC to AC converter? How do I test for correct operation of converter / outlet?
Any help would be appreciated. Eugene T J

Re: 12v to 110v Converter doesn't work

This is in the wrong forum, but I'll help you out anyway. You didn't indicate which 110v outlet you're trying to use. Note that the outlet (not sure whether its 12/110v inside the cubby/console is actually always hot, so you should always get power to it with or without running the Jeep.

The other two outlets in the back (cargo area + on back of center console) are both switched power sources and will require the Jeep to be running to get power. Obviously if there's one on your dash, it's switched too.

Note: you can change the always hot plug into a switched plug by changing the fuse location to the secondary location in the fuse box.

Re: 12v to 110v Converter doesn't work

brentwoodkris. Thanks for your response. I want to be more specific about my 110v power outlet issue. The outlet that I am talking about is located on the back of the center console. I had the engine running when trying to power up the CD player. Nothing happened. Is there a switch that controls this 110v power outlet? If so, where is it located? Also, I am not aware of additional 110v power outlets in the 'cubby' or in the rear of the cargo area. I read my User's Manual, and gained no useful info. about the useage of this 110v outlet. Other than it is limited to 150 watts. Do you know of a procedure I could follow to verify all vehicle settings are correct to allow this power outlet to function?
Thanks again -- Eugene T J

Fuse is probably blown. Check the diagrams located on this page WK2Jeeps.com - 2011-2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee menu page for your 2014 (there looks to be two separate documents).

From my quick glance, I'd start with Fuse F104 and Fuse F90/91, which should both be located in the front box of the Underhood Power Distribution Block.
