Q: How do I turn on automatic headlights in a 2012 Dodge Ram?

asked by on

How do I turn on the automatic headlights?

If your vehicle is equipped with automatic headlights, they will be on the headlight switch, which is to the left of the steering wheel. If you turn the switch to the “Auto” setting, then the lights will automatically come on when there is not sufficient light.

Tip

You cannot activate automatic headlight mode unless the vehicle is running.
