12 volt Cabin Power in T206h with G1000

The 12V cabin power in my aircraft isn't working. There is 24V power to the cabin power switch. The POH says the power converter is mounted to the interior firewall. The maintenance manual says the power converter is in the tailcone. My mechanic and I can't find it in either place. Any suggestions where we should look, or how to troubleshoot?

    Hi, good question. What year is your 206?

  • It's a 2012 with a G1000.

    Since your aircraft is very new, many of our folks don't have experience in it. Have you tried a Cessna Service Center?

  • Eugene beat me to it. The converter should be on the avionics shelf directly below your rear baggage shelf at station 141.

  • See page 28
    It looks to be somewhere around the rear window!!

  • Thanks for the comments. We've dug around in the rear avionics and also on the firewall and can't find it. I'm thinking it might be easier to re-wire the outlets with 24V USB chargers than do a bug disassembly and repair to be able to charge iPads and phones.

  • Similar problem on a C182T. If I am correct, the power converter is bad. The 12V socket no longer works. The power converter is huge and expensive. Any thoughts about how to renew for charging tablets?
