Skoda Fabia: Lights

Skoda Fabia Owners Manual

The lights work only with the ignition on, unless otherwise stated.

The layout of the controls on right-hand drive vehicles partially differs from that shown in » Fig. 40 on page 56. The symbols which mark the positions of the controls are identical.

WARNING

  • Never drive with only the side lights on! The side lights are not bright enough to light up the road sufficiently in front of you or to be seen by other oncoming traffic. Therefore always switch on the low beam when it is dark or if visibility is poor.
  • The activation of the lights should only be undertaken in accordance with national legal requirements.
  • The driver is always responsible for the correct settings and use of the lights.

Note

The headlights may mist up temporarily. When the driving lights are switched on, the light outlet areas are free from condensation after a short time, although the headlight lenses may still be misted up around the edge. This mist has no influence on the life of the lighting system.
