Activating the Automatic High Beam Control

Switch the lighting control to the autolamps position. See Autolamps.

Note: The lighting control defaults to autolamps each time you switch your vehicle on.

When active, the high beams turn on if:

  • The ambient light level is low enough.
  • There is no traffic in front of your vehicle.
  • The vehicle speed is greater than approximately 32 mph (51 km/h).

When active, the high beams turn off if:

  • The ambient light level is high enough that high beams are not required.
  • The system detects an approaching vehicle's headlamps or tail lamps.
  • The system detects severe rain, snow or fog.
  • The camera is blocked.
  • The vehicle speed falls below approximately 27 mph (44 km/h).

Note: The deactivation speed is lower on curves.

Note: High beam reactivation may be delayed in certain curvy road situations.

Note: The system may not operate properly if the sensor is blocked. Keep the windshield free from obstruction or damage.

Note: The system may not operate properly in cold or inclement conditions. You can switch on the high beams by overriding the system.

Note: If the system detects a blockage, for example bird droppings, bug splatter, snow or ice, the system goes into low beam mode until you clear the blockage. A message may appear in the information display if the camera is blocked.

Note: Using much larger tires or equipping vehicle accessories such as snowplows can modify your vehicle's ride height and degrade automatic high beam control performance.
