Can anyone kindly provide a part number for the 115 volt AC power outlet?

Thank you
I have several MB cars. I would like to install the 115 volt outletlet in the trunk of my 2014 E350. I have a power inverter part number 2049820020, from a 2012 GL 450. The inverter has the cables included and just need the receptacle.

I will update my profile next time I log in on my computer. I don't see a way to do that on my phone. I believe that my profile currently just shows my 2000 CLK convertible.

Thank you for your timely assistance. I will most likely need more when I get all these parts in hand

From what I can see, the E350 never had a 110v Power Inverter option, so how are you planning on wiring it up?

Attached are the GL pics for reference.

I'm not 100% sure yet. The E350 does have this option
The outlet is located on the back of the center console. The outlet replaces the ash tray. From what I have been able to determine so far the receptacles have a micro switch that is made when the blade of the device is inserted into the receptacle. Making the micro switch energizes the inverter thus powering the receptacle. I believe that I can mount the inverter in the trunk, connect a ground and switched 12v DC power and then away we go. I appreciate the attachments that you provided and I welcome further input from anyone that can provide any additional suggestions or help.

Hmmm, I am not finding that to be the case (see pic). There is a socket, but it is 12v. If you post your VIN I can tell you the exact parts you need.

I downloaded the online operators manual for 2014 E class sedan/wagon. On page 321 the outlet is depicted. The E class inverter is part # 1669820020, outlet is 0008206251.
I have the inverter for a 2009 GL450, with complete wiring harness. The inverter for the GL is 2049820020, and the outlet is 0008205351. The only thing I see that is physically different is on the E the cover opens horizontally, the GL opens vertically. Questions that I still have: How is the outlet secured into the area that was the ash tray, and is the wiring connector on both outlets identical?

I wish that I could give you my VIN so that you could look it up but my car was not equipped with the outlet installed. If it had I wouldn't be going through this process.
THANKS

That doesnt matter. I can filter out the SA options in EPC and see the exact parts and mounts needed for your exact model, hence the VIN is needed. There is no need to fear posting your VIN. It's on your windshield anyway. The only thing a forum member could do with it is buy you insurance. :D

Ok, this is really, really weird. I can understand why you are frustrated! In the Mercedes Electronic Parts Catalog (EPC), which is supposed to be THE definitive source for our vehicles, there is no part listed for a 120volt socket in the rear console of a W212 (and specifically YOUR W212). Now, if you look at the newer W213 E-Class models the socket is there just as you described. But the W213 didn't exist in 2014.

Stranger still is that your exact 2014 model DOES have a part number and SA code (U80) for a power inverter in the trunk (se pic). So one would think that there here would have to be a corresponding socket somewhere in the car! But I cant find it. I even downloaded the 2014 manual as you did and saw the instruction page.

Next I am going to search the wiring diagram in WIS and see if I can find where it goes. I love a good mystery!

(PS: I also attached a copy of your vehicles datacard for your records)

Thank you very much. I am expecting to get my hands on the inverter and cable from the GL this afternoon. I haven't ordered the receptacle yet. Worst case (easiest option) I can order the GL receptable and mount it in the trunk lining next to the 12v outlet I would love to find a way to put it where depicted in the back of the center console. We have the rear seat entertainment system so this would enable using a game system with it.

Thank you for all of the assistance..

OK, I have made progress!

I was able to find the DC/AC Converter wiring diagram for your model (W212.0). It is attached below. On the schematic, your inverter box is N24/3 and the socket is X58/34. You will see the microswitch you spoke of, indicated in the socket (s1). This is where things become sticky as the inverter (and socket) are directly connected and powered through the rear SAM. When you insert a plug into the socket, the SAM senses it for some reason. Now whether or not the socket is hot 24/7 or only when the SAM senses a plug is a guess at this point (but why else would they do it?). If the SAM is controlling the socket, this may be an SCN coded feature. Meaning you would have to have a dealer or someone with enable the feature in XENTRY before it will work. Now if that is the case, you might try applying voltage to the inverter inputs to see if it lights up the socket. If so, you could bypass the SAM altogether and put the box & socket anywhere you like.

I then looked up electrical connector X58/34 and found a document showing the wiring connector stub in the center console (see pic). One very interesting note, is on the fuse assignment doc (attached) it states that fuse #92 is "Valid until 30.11.2011 with code U80 (115V socket): DC/AC converter control unit (N24/3)". 2011?! Then why is it in the 2014 owners manual? Very strange indeed.

The bottom line is the trail went cold at this point. I find it very odd that 90% of the parts and wires are present, but there is no indication of the actual socket anywhere in the parts system for replacement on a W212.0. My only guess is that it was a feature that was either only available on very odd W212 models (Taxi's, Hybrids, Elongated models, etc. There are over 80 different variations of the W212 E-Class, I didn't have time to check them all). Or that it was a feature they intended to offer, and then pulled the plug at some point...no pun intended. :) Your particular model, the W212.0 does not list it as a valid option.

I can give you the parts numbers for the W213, but there is no guarantee that the ashtray portion is even the same size, etc. I think anyway you look at it, you are going to be experimenting. The attached docs should help quite a bit. Good luck!

I just got the inverter and the cable. On the cable I have modular connectors on both ends. There are 3 remaining wires. Brown, Pink and Red/White. I gotta believe brown us the ground. Let me absorb all of this, Thanks for all assistance.
