How do I use the dome light?

Your car’s dome light provides important illumination when entering or exiting the vehicle, particularly in low-light situations. However, you can adjust its operation so that it works (or doesn’t) when you want it. Here’s how:

  1. Locate the dome light. It’s in the center of the ceiling, slightly behind the front seats.

  2. Turn the switch to your preferred type of operation:

  • Door: The dome light will turn on when the doors open and turn off when they close.

  • Off: The dome light will not turn on at all unless you change the switch position.

  • On: The dome light will stay on until you manually move the switch to off or door.
