Warning

Daytime running lights and parking lights are not bright enough to let you see ahead or be seen by others when it is dark.
  • Always switch on the low-beam headlights at dusk or when it is dark and whenever the weather is bad or visibility is poor.
  • Never use the daytime running lights to see where you are going. They are not bright enough and will not let you see far enough ahead for safety, especially at dusk or when it is dark. Always switch on the low-beam headlights at dusk or when it is dark.
  • The taillights do not come on with the daytime running lights. Unless the taillights are on, a vehicle cannot be seen by others in bad weather, at dusk, or when it is dark.
  • Even if automatic headlight control () is switched on, the low-beam headlights may still not come on by themselves in fog or heavy rain. You have to switch on the low-beam headlights manually.

In cool or humid weather, the insides of the headlights, the taillights, and turn signals can temporarily fog up. This is normal and does not affect the service life of the vehicle's lighting system.
