blackout. With no lights on, the main switch can be
turned to the left without operating the mechanical
switch to get blackout marker lights (including
blackout taillights and stoplights) and blackout driving
lights. But for stoplights for daylight driving or
headlights for ordinary night driving, you must first lift
the mechanical switch lever and then turn the main
switch to the right. The auxiliary switch gives panel
lights when the main switch is in any of its ON
positions. But it will give parking lights only when the
main switch is in service drive (to the extreme right).
When the main switch is off, the auxiliary switch
should not be moved from the OFF position.
The dimmer switch controls the high and low
headlamp beam function and is normally mounted
on the floorboard (fig. 2-61) or steering column (fig.
2-62). When the operator activates the dimmer switch,
it changes the electrical connection to the headlights.
