No power inverter button on 2014 overland?

Just want to be sure I'm not blind ! But is there no more button to turn on and off the power inverter that's in the back of the centre console ? My 11 jeep had it on the centre dash .

If it's not in the owner's manual it's probably not there.

I forgot I even had the outlet back there, so thanks for reminding me.

I recall a conversation a month or so ago that discussed there being no on/off switch. I actually don't understand how a button would be of any use? I have never used the inverter in any jeep, so it never was something I searched for either way.

Re: No power inverter button on 2014 overland?

In some ways, I wish I didn't have to remember to push a button to turn on the AC power outlet, but then again...being able to turn it off if a kid is being unruly is a nice feature. LOL Seriously, inverters generate heat when they are operational. Perhaps they deemed it wasn't a real issue and eliminated the button?

Does the ignition need to be in acc or run for it to be live ? If so there should not be an issue.

Re: No power inverter button on 2014 overland?

The reason I liked the button to turn it on and off is because in my 11 jeep I had a DVD Player behind the passenger head rest for my child to watch. Anytime I would have to play it or stop it I would push the button. Now when she falls asleep or wakes up I need to reach behind to plug and unplug the darn thing . Not the safest thing will driving but you know how the little ones don't stop asking and repeat themselves over and over. Lol . I guess it's not a big deal for some but I made use of the button and the plug in the back. Too bad no more on off switch .

Outlet was changed to auto detect from what it was before with the switch. Auto is more expensive, however, with the new design and the common center stack controls for the 8.4 etc. there was no room to put the switch.

Re: No power inverter button on 2014 overland?

I have the switch in my 2012 and with my kids being out of high school, I would prefer that it always be on as I have plugged in a computer to charge while driving and forgotten to push the button. BUT, that having been said, in my prior vehicle I did enjoy being able to control the entertainment center from the driver's seat when the kids were little. Either way has its advantages/disadvantages.
