Congratulations on your first car! The
Toyota Corolla
is a great car and should last you a while! Turning on the lights is very easy once you learn. There is a lever to the left side of the steering wheel—twist it up to turn on the lights in your Toyota Corolla.
There are several settings:
  • Off: The lights are off.
  • Auto: The lights automatically turn on and off when it’s dark.
  • Parking lights: The lights are on in the parking mode. Indicated by an icon with two small lights pointing out.
  • On: The lights are on.
To turn on your brights or *high beams**, push the lever forward.
And that’s it! But you’re still not quite ready to hit the road just yet. First, you’ll need to get
