Do not forget to switch off the foglamps when they are no longer necessary.

If the driver's door is opened, a temporary audible signal warns the driver that the lamps are on.

The lamps, with the exception of the sidelamps, switch off automatically after a maximum duration of 30 minutes to prevent discharging of the battery.
