Battery saver function

o The purpose of this feature is to prevent the battery from being discharged. The system automatically turns off the headlights and parking lights when the driver removes the ignition key and opens the driver-side door (in that order).

o With this feature, the parking lights will be turned off automatically if the driver parks on the side of road at night. If necessary, to keep the lights on when the ignition key is removed, perform the following :

1) Open the driver-side door.

2) Turn the parking lights OFF and ON again using the light switch on the steering column.

CAUTION:

If the driver gets out of the vehicle through other doors (except driver’s door), the battery saver function does not operate. Therefore, it causes the battery to be discharged. In this case, make sure to turn off the lamp before getting out of the vehicle.
