: Headlamp High/Low-Beam Changer

: Windshield Wipers

: Windshield Washer

Flash-To-Pass Feature.

Information for these features is on the pages following.

Turn and Lane-Change Signals

An arrow on the instrument panel cluster flashes in the direction of the turn or lane change.

For vehicles with the side blind zone alert system, an arrow in the outside mirror flashes when the turn signal is used.

Move the lever all the way up or down to signal a turn.

Raise or lower the lever until the arrow starts to flash to signal a lane change. Hold it there until the lane change is complete. If the lever is briefly pressed and released, the turn signal will flash three times. The lever returns to its starting position when it is released.

If after signaling a turn or lane change the arrow flashes rapidly or does not come on, a signal bulb may be burned out. Have the bulbs replaced. If the bulb is not burned out, check the fuse.

Turn Signal On Chime

If the turn signal is left on, a warning chime sounds and the Driver Information Center (DIC) will display TURN SIGNAL ON after driving about a mile as a reminder to turn it off.

Headlamp High/Low-Beam Changer

To change the headlamps from low beam to high beam, push the turn signal lever away from you. To change from high beam to low beam, pull the turn signal lever toward you.

While the high beams are on, this light located on the instrument panel cluster will also be on.


This feature lets you use the high-beam headlamps to signal the driver in front of you that you want to pass. It works even if your headlamps are off.

Pull the turn signal lever toward you briefly to flash-to-pass.

If the headlamps are off or on low beam, the high-beam headlamps will turn on. They will stay on as long as you hold the lever toward you and the high-beam indicator on the instrument panel cluster will come on.
