The position lamps are switched on with the rotating ring on the stalk switch.

P5-1617 Stalk with turning ring in positionlight position

Stalk switch rotating ring in position lamps position.

Turn the rotating ring to the position - the position lamps are switched on (number plate lighting is switched on at the same time).

If the car's electrical system is in ignition position II or the car is running then the daytime running lights are switched on instead of the front position lamps. However, this does not apply at stationary when the car is running, if the rotating ring is moved to position from another position. In this case, the position lamps are switched on.

If the tailgate is opened when it is dark outside, the rear position lamps come on (if not already switched on) to warn road users approaching from behind. This takes place irrespective of the position of the rotating ring or the ignition position of the car's electrical system.

When driving for more than 30 seconds at max. 10 km/h (approx. 6 mph), or if the speed exceeds 10 km/h (approx. 6 mph), the daytime running lights are switched on. The driver should turn to a position other than .
