The parking lights are controlled by the exterior lamp control, which is on the turn signal lever. This lever protrudes from the left side of the steering column. To turn on the parking lights, rotate the exterior lamp control to the parking light icon. When turned to this setting, the parking lights, sidemarker lights, taillights, license plate lights, and instrument panel lights will all be turned on.
