Customer Question

When the lights switch is on 'A' my headlights work automatically, however, occasionally sometimes that same switch moves to '0' by itself??? Why does this happen?

this is a common complaint on this model


usually people simply hit the switch with their knee on the way out, thus moving it


it could also be that your switch is defective and moving on its own, but usually it is the knee thing, especially for taller people.
