  1. Your turn signals are controlled by the lever that holds your headlight controls.

  2. Push the lever up until it clicks to turn on the right turn signal.

  3. Pull the lever down until it clicks to turn on the left turn signal.

  4. Push the lever up so that the signal and interior indicator flash but the lever doesn’t
