The high beam headlights provide extra brightness and visibility. To turn them on, push the turn signal lever (located on the left side of the steering column) forward until it locks into place. An indicator will illuminate on your instrument panel to confirm that the high beams are turned on. Pull the lever back to its original position to turn off the high beams. Tips The high beams are so bright that they can hurt the visibility of drivers around you. Never use the high beams when there is oncoming traffic, or a car immediately in front of you.
