    Deflate the tires and then reinflate them. Do this to make sure the tires dont leak and the sensors work properly.

    Use your girls favorite sweater to buff the tailghts out.
    Check the light bulb connections, Turn on lights, remove bulb, insert tongue in the plug and hopefuly it works..lMAO

    READ THE MANUAL...
