How do I turn on the headlights?

The headlights are turned on with the exterior lamp control, which is located on the instrument panel, to the left of the steering column. To turn on the headlights, rotate the exterior lamp control clockwise three notches, to the headlamp icon. When you turn on the headlights, the parking lights, taillights, license plate lights, sidemarker lights, and instrument panel lights will all come on as well.
