Default Dum Dum needs help help!

Just picked up a new 06 minus the owners manual. I can't seem to find the fog light switch, am I going blind in addition to crazy? Thanx.

You aren't the only idiot, I couldn't figure it out for a week either. The whole headlight switch pulls out to turn them on.

I couldn't figure it out either for the first few days. I was looking around for the fog light switch like the F-bodies had. Damn I felt like a tard when I read the owners manual.

Don't forget the release under the rear passenger side seat and the very important trunk release inside the trunk!!!

Here's an '05 owners manual. Should be about the same. Do you know about the secret dash display screen? It's not in the manual.

Hold down the mode and set buttons when you turn the key to start the car. It gives you different options like digital RPM, voltage, coolant temp, # of gallons left in the tank and a few other things. Pressing the mode key will make it go to the different screens. Pressing the set button will bring the display back to normal.

There is also a trunk release under the back passenger seat headrest. Pull the headrest up and a little yellow handle is under it to release the trunk.

yeah, the difference in the two is that the one in the glovebox is easy to get to, but uses Power.

The one behind the head rest uses an actual cable to do it. So even if the battery is dead you can get it open from inside the car.
