How to Operate Headlights on the Ford Fiesta

Whether you just purchased a Ford Fiesta, or are renting one, you might be wondering how to operate the headlights on the vehicle. These instructions should help.

  1. Locate the lighting control nob on the dashboard, usually to the left of the steering wheel.
  2. Turn the knob to the desired setting:
    • Off
    • Parking, instrument panel, and tail lights
    • Headlights
    • Automatic Lights

Note: When Automatic Lights are turned on, lights will be turned on when darkness is detected or the windshield wipers are constantly in use.


To turn on high beam headlights, pull the lever attached to the left side of the steering wheel toward you until you hear a click. An indicator on the instrument panel will illuminate. Pull it again to turn the high beams off.

  1. No, it doesn’t. You should mention that the low beam headlight must be turned on, when you continuously want to operate high beam light, otherwise you can only operate just for a second. I didn’t know how to keep it on, for the case I will know at night, and keep try during day time while low beam light was off.
