How do I flash the headlights?

It’s very easy to flash the headlights in your car.

  1. Find the multifunction lever, which sticks out of the left side of the steering column.

  2. Pull the lever towards you to the first level, then let go.

This will quickly flash your high beams on, before turning them off again.
