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.
