Default i got some questions

the thing on the far left on my dashboard says 'calibrate', whats that mean?

how do you turn the fog lights on? either im retarded or they dont work.

^ same with the horn... im sure im not retarded on this one though. and where is it located under the hood.

what does the little switch up by the moonroof do, the one with the headlight picture on it and little orange LED?

can i use 90 octane in my SC because its cheaper than 92? i dont have 91 near me.

thanks

it wants you to calibrate the compass. this can be done by looking in the techinfo for compass.

the little button next to the moonroof is for the fog lights. both of mine dindt work when i got mine either, they use 880 bulbs

did you check the fuses for the horn?

i used 89 for a while when i first got my car cuz i didnt know, until they said to get premium on here...i think 90 would be fine...but maybe some others can chirp in here

Fog lights should be controlled by the switch by the LED light, your 4th question. That answers two of your questions.

For the horn, try pressing up and in over the horn symbol on the wheel.

anyone know this? when i switch the fog light switch the LED lights up depending on ON or OFF, does this mean the bulbs are burnt out or do i have to check fuses, do i also need to check the horn fuse? thanks

When the orange led is on, the fog lights should be on. If not, replace the bulbs, fuse, or check the wiring.

You won't see a difference at night with them on. Stockers suck balls. When the left side is in, and the light is on, the foggies are on.
