How do you operate the Turn Signals?

Your Turn Signals provide important directional information for drivers behind you as well as those approaching you. They tell other drivers that you’re about to turn, so they can expect to slow down and will begin backing off (it also alerts other drivers coming toward you that you might attempt to turn before they reach your position and they should be cautious in their approach). Here’s how to work them:

  1. Make sure the ignition is on (your turn signals don’t work with the key off, but your hazard lights will).

  2. Locate the Turn Signal lever on the left side of the steering wheel (it also controls the wipers and lets you switch from high beams to low beams).

  3. Push the lever down to signal a left turn.

  4. Pull the lever up to signal a right turn.

  5. Don’t forget to reset the lever after you make the turn. Some turns are not tight enough to automatically reset the lever.
