Exterior and interior lamp operation

Operate the combination lamp switch to check that all lamps are functioning properly.

For information regarding the inspection and replacement of the fuses and the lamp bulbs, refer to “Fuses” and “Replacement of lamp bulbs”.

If the fuses and bulbs are all OK, we recommend you to have your vehicle checked and repaired.
