flasher  and extra  wiring. The  green
arrows on your  instrument panel will
flash whenever  you signal  a turn  or
lane  change.   Properly   connected,

Consult an authorized HYUNDAI
dealer for assistance.
Operating  your vehicle  in  D (Drive)
when  towing  a  trailer will  minimize
heat build-up  and  extend the  life of
your transmission.
