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

asked by on December 11, 2015

How do I turn on the headlights?

You should always use your headlights when it is at all dark out. Headlights help you see better, help others see you, and are legally required. Turning on the headlights in your car is easy.

  1. Locate the headlight switch, which is a knob to the left of your steering column.

  2. Rotate the knob clockwise to the on position, which is a symbol of an illuminated light.

  3. When you want to turn the lights off, rotate the knob back to the original O position.
