How do I turn on the parking lights?

To turn on the parking lights, first locate the turn signal lever, which protrudes from the left side of the steering column. Then, turn the Light switch to the headlights position. This will turn on the parking lights, as well as the side marker, tail, license plate, and instrument lights.
