How do I turn on the exterior parking lamps?

The exterior lamp control is placed on the instrument panel, to the left of the steering column. To turn on the exterior parking lamps, rotate the control knob clockwise two notches, to the parking lamps icon. When the exterior parking lamps are turned on, the parking lights, taillights, license plate lights, sidemarker lights, and instrument panel lights will all come on.
