If so equipped, the daytime running lights operate with the headlight switch in the OFF position. The LED portion of the headlights automatically illuminates when the engine is started and the parking brake is released.

To turn ON your front parking lights, tail lights, license plate light and instrument panel lights, turn the headlight switch to THIS position. To turn ON the front headlights, turn the switch to THIS position. All the other lights will stay ON.

To turn ON your high beam headlights, push THIS lever forward. You’ll see a blue indicator light illuminate. To select low beam pull the lever back toward you. The blue light will turn off. To make your high beam headlights flash ON and OFF, pull the lever toward you and release it.

Fog lights create a wide beam pattern, focused lower than the headlights. This minimizes reflected light and helps you see better in foggy conditions. If your vehicle is equipped with fog lights, here’s how to activate them. Your headlights must be ON and low beam selected. Then rotate the switch to THIS position and your fog lights will come ON. Turn the switch to OFF to deactivate the fog lights. If you turn the high beam headlights ON, the fog lights will automatically turn OFF.

If your vehicle is equipped with the Autolight system, you can preset the headlights to automatically operate based on exterior lighting conditions. To activate this system, simply turn the headlight switch to the AUTO position, then turn ON the ignition. To turn the system OFF, turn the headlight switch to any other setting. The Autolight system will also keep the headlights ON for a period of time after you turn the ignition OFF and close all doors.

There is a light sensor that controls the Autolight system on the top of the instrument panel. Keep that area clear of papers and other material.

Please see your Owner’s Manual for important safety information, system limitations and additional operating information.
