How do I use the auto lights?

The auto light feature controls whether or not your headlights are turned on, based on the outside darkness. When the car detects that the headlights are needed for visibility and safety, the lights will turn on. When the lights are no longer required, they will turn off. To turn on the auto light feature, rotate the Light switch (located on the turn signal lever) three notches, to the auto light position.
