Possible to retrofit 115V outlet

Hello fellow Pacifica owners,

Is it possible to order/retrofit the 115V outlet that's in the Limited into a touring model?
I've attached a picture of the outlet.

Thank you in advance,

One of these would be a lot easier.

Maybe tinkering with the parts...careful though...itll probably hurt your warranty if you try to install it yourself...might be worth going to FCA about.

I was curious about this too. I haven't pulled off the blank bezel to see if the wiring harness was even run on vehicles that didn't have the inverter as a factory installed option. I'll take a look this weekend.

I would imagine it is more than just wiring. Need an inverter installed in the car too.

Obviously. But it would be a lot harder to pull wiring if none is in place than it would be to find an inverter from Mopar or from a junked van . . .

Does every Limited Pacifica has the 115v outlet? My sales guy said it only comes with the theater package. I actually prefer a limited without theater package but love to have the 115v outlet.

I think the sales guy is correct. If memory serves, it is generally useful but primarily there to help sales of the Home Theater package as a source of power for the kiddies to plug in their video game consoles. A larger alternator (220Amp) is also associated with the Home Theater Package and 115 power outlet but, unlike the power outlet, the alternator upgrade also comes with the tow package.

Many vans, like my odyssey, have limited amps through the cigarette lighter / accessory port.

The Pacifica seems (per the manual) to deliver a full 15 Amps, or > 150W, so the portable inverter would work. Note the "if you leave it plugged in it will drain the battery" warning.

Power Outlets
Your vehicle is equipped with 12 Volt (15 Amp) power outlets, and 5 Volt (2.5 Amp) USB power outlets, that can be used to power cellular phones, small electronics and other low powered electrical accessories. The power outlets can be labeled with either a “key” or a “battery” symbol to indicate how the outlet is powered. Power outlets labeled with a “key” are powered when the ignition is in the ON or ACC position, while the outlets labeled with a “battery” are connected directly to the battery and powered at all times.

NOTE:
• All accessories connected to the “battery” powered outlets should be removed or turned off when the vehicle is not in use to protect the battery against discharge.
