How do you use the hazard lights?
Like all other vehicles on the road, your SUV is equipped with emergency hazard lights. These should be activated anytime you’re stranded on the side of the road to provide visibility for oncoming traffic and to enhance safety. Depending on the laws where you live, you may also be able to use your hazards when driving in treacherous conditions (torrential rain, heavy snow, etc.). Here’s how to use them:
Locate the hazard flasher control on the steering column.
Press the button down.
All four turn signals will turn on (and the interior turn signal indicators will flash simultaneously).
Press the button again to turn the hazard lights off.
Use your hazards with caution. They will work with the engine on or off. When the engine is off, they will flash until the battery is drained.
Check your local laws before driving with your hazards on. It’s not legal in all states.
