The turn signals are important safety features that alert your surroundings of your intention to make a turn. To signal a right turn, pull the Turn Signal lever all the way up, until it locks into place. To signal a left turn, push the lever all the way down, until it locks into place. A blinking arrow will flash on the instrument panel to confirm that your turn signal is on. After making the turn, your turn signal lever should resume to its normal position; if it does not, manually pull the lever to the standard position. Tip Not only are turn signals important safety features, but their use is legally required.
