How do you turn on the dome lights?
Dome lights shouldn’t be used while driving, but they provide important visibility when you’re getting in or out of the car in low-light situations. They can also be immensely handy if you’re searching for something you’ve dropped on the floor (your cellphone, for instance). Here’s how to work them:
Open any door. The dome lights should come on (unless you have them turned off manually).
Turn the dimmer control all the way up past the detent.
You can turn the dome light off by turning the dimmer switch all the way down. You’ll feel a detent at the bottom. Rotate through this and the dome light will be set to off. It will not come on even if a door is opened.
