Headlight and Turn Signal SwitchTo turn the lights on, twist the knob on the end of the lever.

However, on some models, front fog lights and all lights below but the headlights also turn on when the engine is started with the headlight switch off or at the first click-stop position.

Forward -
FIRST CLICKSTOP: No operation.
SECOND CLICKSTOP: Only the parking, tail, license plate and instrument panel lights turn on.
THIRD CLICKSTOP: The headlights also turn on.

Backward -
FIRST CLICKSTOP: Only the headlights turn off (Headlights stay in the raised position).
SECOND CLICKSTOP: All other lights turn off (Headlights stay in the raised position).
THIRD CLICKSTOP: The headlights retract.

On vehicles sold in the United Kingdom and Germany, adjust the headlight beam level before turning on the headlights. (See Headlight Beam Level Control Switch.)

The headlights automatically turn off when the ignition is turned off. To turn them on again, turn the key to the "ON" position or actuate the headlight switch. The buzzer will remind you to turn the lights off when the driver's door is opened if the ignition switch is turned to the "LOCK" position with the headlight switch on.

If the headlight rectractable system does not operate, see Part 4 for emergency information.


  • To prevent the battery from being discharged, do not leave the lights on for a long period when the engine is not running.
  • If there is a possibility that the retractable system could freeze, keep the headlights in the raised position.
  • If the headlights are frozen, do not attempt to raise or retract them but wait until the system thaws out.

High/Low Beam SwitchFor high beam, push the lever away from you. Pull it toward you for low beam. For the headlight flasher, pull the lever all the way back, and release.

A blue light on the dashboard indicates high beam is on.

On vehicles sold in Austria, the front fog lights will also flash when the headlight flasher is used.

The headlight flasher works even when the headlight switch is off.

If the switch is off, hold the lever for a second before releasing it. The headlights will rise and come on. They will automatically retract after the lever is release.

Turn Signal SwitchFor signaling turns, move the lever up or down in the conventional manner.

The key myst be in the "ON" position.

The turn signal is self-cancelling after a turn, but after a lane change, you may have to cancel it by hand. You can also signal a lane change by moving the turn signal lever partway and holding it there. If the gree dashboard light flashes faster than normal, it indicates that the front or rear turn signal bulb has burned out.
