I just want to be able to wink and the car dim the lights automatically! And maybe this wink feature could be integrated into my Armadillo Helmet. Is this too much to ask?

I bet there is a "clapper".....clap on for brights, clap off for low beams!! That definitely belongs in the 21st Century Car!

...am I right?
like a ford... are you serious? the 3 fords i've had did that.

i'd say you pull to flash & keep pulling til it clicks to engage them like in the 2 GMs i've had.

It might....I dunno (it was a total guess). My Cobalt is how I described...and judging by some pictures of that left stalk...it seems to indicate the same thing.

I would also guess this would be the case. My Hyundai is like this and I much prefer it to the old "pull it to flash, pull to click to leave on" method. Much easier to use.

I'd be glad to see that GM is evaluating the controls based on ease of use, not just the way things have always been done. Case in point, cruise controls on the steering wheel (although I didn't want buttons on my steering wheel ).

I think that most cars are going to the `pull to blink, push to stay on` method. I can remember on my old 84 suburban and a 92 GMC truck that those were the only parts to break for me when it was `pull farther back to switch`. Maybe I just pulled back to hard or something, but the little plastic clip inside the column broke.

I thought I was the only one that missed that feature...loved it on the floor. Was like a secret button and I was 007.
