You must need a long cord to get to the 12v power sources in car how long do they come ?

Thanks with only 800 miles on these i hit a small pot hole no damage but it felt like an explosion (not liking it)
I have the compressor and repair kit from Griot's garage. Between the cord and the hose, I can reach any tire from any of the outlets.

Use the center console one, though. It's a 20 amp full sized fuse, not a 15 amp mini like in the trunk. It'll run the pump, but if you stop the pump and try to restart while it is hot, you'll pop the fuse. Ask me how I know. Allow about 30 seconds to cool down - so don't turn on and off on one tire. Moving from tire to tire is fine.
