Automatic main beam headlights

Depending on the vehicle, this system switches the main beam headlights on and off automatically. It uses a camera located behind the interior rear-view mirror to detect vehicles that are being followed and those coming in the opposite direction.

The main beam headlights come on automatically if:

- exterior light is weak;

- no other vehicles or lighting are detected;

- the vehicle speed is above approximately 25 mph (40 km/h).

If any of the above conditions are not fulfilled, the system switches to dipped beam headlights.

Before driving at night: check that the electrical equipment is operating correctly and adjust your headlights. Refer to the information on “Adjusting the headlight beams” in section 1. As a general precaution, check that the lights are not obscured (by dirt, mud, snow or objects being transported).

The “automatic main beam headlights” system should under no circumstances be used to replace driver attention and responsibility with regard to vehicle lighting and adapting to light, visibility and traffic conditions.

The system may encounter difficulties under certain conditions, including:

- extreme weather conditions (rain, snow, fog, etc.);

- obstruction in front of the windscreen or camera;

- when a following or oncoming vehicle has weak or hidden lighting;

- incorrect settings for the front headlights;

- reflective systems;

- ...
