How do you operate the fog lights?

If your car is equipped with fog lights, they can provide better illumination of the road when you drive in misty or foggy conditions. Here’s what you need to know about operating them:

  1. Turn the ignition on.
  2. Turn the headlight switch to auto, parking lights, or low beam headlights.
  3. Pull the headlight switch out (toward the driver).
  4. The fog light indicator light will come on.

Tips

  • The fog lights will not work when using your high beams.
  • The fog lights will work in auto, normal or parking light position.
