ELECTRICAL POWER OUTLETS
The auxiliary 12 Volt (13 Amp) power outlets can provide
power for in-cab accessories designed for use with the
standard “cigar lighter” plug. The 12 Volt power outlets
have a cap attached to the outlet indicating “12V DC”,
together with either a key symbol or a battery symbol.
A key symbol indicates that the key must be in the
ON/RUN or ACC positions for the outlet to provide
power. The battery symbol indicates that the outlet is
connected to the battery, and can provide power at all
times.
NOTE: To ensure proper operation a MOPAR knob
and element must be used.
CAUTION!
• Do not exceed the maximum power of 160 Watts
(13 Amps) at 12 Volts. If the 160 Watt (13 Amp)
power rating is exceeded the fuse protecting the
system will need to be replaced.
• Power outlets are designed for accessory plugs
only. Do not insert any other object in the power
outlets as this will damage the outlet and blow the
fuse. Improper use of the power outlet can cause
damage not covered by your New Vehicle Limited
Warranty.
The auxiliary power outlets can be found in the following
locations:
• Lower left and lower right of the center stack —
without floor mounted shifter.

The switch you ask about is to turn on the AC outlet.

POWER INVERTER — IF EQUIPPED
A 115 Volt (150 Watts Maximum) outlet is located on the
center stack of the instrument panel, to the right of the
radio. This outlet can power cellular phones, electronics
and other low power devices requiring power up to 150
Watts. Certain high-end video games, such as Playstation3
and XBox360 will exceed this power limit, as will
most power tools.

The above was copied & pasted from sig truck manual. Hope this helps. Welcome to the forum, best wishes.

Well said Camperman. It's nice to see questions answered instead of just telling someone to use the search function. :thumbup:

If you are asking about the power inverter, to plug in a 115 volt type acc. the switch will light up when on. Hope this helps.

^^^ Yes the button is to turn on or off. When lit, the 115 volt outlet is on. Must be turned on to work.

The inverter is also key on power only. When the truck shuts off so does the inverter
