Idea for the 240V outlet in the Grandland

The other day I sat in the back seats of my Grandland at night. I noticed it’s quite dark, unlike the front seats where you have the ambient lighting in the door bins, downlight and dashboard lights. Of course you’ve got the courtesy light and reading lights in the roof, but I thought it would be nice to have some form of soft ambient lighting, especially nearer the footwells. Then I had an idea, why not plug one of those soft glow nightlight plugs in the 240V socket! I’ve got an orange neon one about somewhere so I’ll take a photo and share when the rain stops and I get chance to try it out. If it works then there’s quite a range of nice LED ones for sale, it should look quite neat and provide some cosy lighting in the rear.

So interested to know what else people have used their 240V mains outlet (if fitted) below the rear facing vents of their GXs.

Regards
Simon

I don't think mine works, just plugged a small lamp in, no joy, anyone else had problems?

Did you start the engine? Mine only works with the engine running.
