To do this, find the multifunction lever, which protrudes from the left side of the steering column. Push the multifunction lever towards the instrument panel, until it locks into place, to turn on your bright lights. Pull it back to its original position to turn the lights off.

Tip

You should never have your bright lights on when there is oncoming traffic, as it will greatly impair the visibility for fellow drivers.
