Sometimes you need extra visibility when it’s raining or foggy. Your headlamps may not provide enough light, but the fog lamps will increase your viewing ability.

  1. Use the lever on the left side of the steering column.

  2. Turn the second switch on the lever to the second position to activate the fog lights.

  3. Turn it back to Off to shut off the fog lights.

Tip

Fog lights are able to be used when the headlights are in the low beam position.
