(depending on the vehicle)
Turn ring 2 until the AUTO symbol is opposite mark 3: with the engine running, the dipped beam headlights switch on or off automatically depending on the brightness of the light outside, without any action on stalk 1.
Before driving at night, check that the electrical equipment is operating correctly and adjust the headlight beams (if your vehicle is not carrying its normal load). As a general precaution, check that the lights are not obscured (by dirt, mud, snow or objects being transported).

To return to the dipped headlight position, pull the stalk 1 towards you again.

During deactivation of the main beam headlights, the dipped beam headlights return to their original position.
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.
Note: make sure the windscreen is not obscured (dirt, mud, snow, condensation etc.).
To activate automatic main beam headlights:
turn ring 2 until the symbol AUTO is opposite mark 3 and push the stalk 1. Warning light comes on the instrument panel.
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;
Using the portable navigation system at night in the windscreen area below the camera may disturb the operation of the “automatic main beam headlights” system (risk of reflection on the windscreen).
If the vehicle is parked on the hard shoulder with the tailgate open, the rear lights may be obscured. You should make other road users aware of your vehicle by using a warning triangle or other equipment specified by the road traffic regulations of the country you are driving in.
Automatic main beam headlights (continued)
To deactivate automatic main beam headlights:
- turn ring 2 to a position other than AUTO;
- pull the stalk 1.
Warning light goes out on the instrument panel.
Note: the main beam headlights will be activated upon deactivation of the automatic main beam headlights function.
When the message “Check Automatic Lighting” appears on the instrument panel, the system is deactivated.
Consult an approved dealer.
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.
Switching off the lights
The lights will go out automatically when the engine is switched off, the driver’s door is opened or the vehicle is locked. In this case, the next time the engine is started the lights will be switched back on according to the position of the ring 2.
Note: if the fog lights are lit, the lights are not switched off automatically.
Lights-on reminder buzzer
If the lights are on after the engine is switched off, a warning beep sounds when the driver’s door is opened to warn you that the lights are still on (to avoid battery discharge or other problems).
When the message “WARNING: Check Lighting” with warning light © is displayed and warning light k flashes on the instrument panel, this indicates that there is a lighting fault.
Consult an authorised dealer.

(depending on vehicle)
When driving in forward gear, with the vehicle speed below approximately 25 mph (40 km/h), whenever the dipped beam headlights are on: under certain conditions (the steering wheel at an angle, the indicator lights on etc.), when turning a corner one of the front fog lights will switch on to light the inside of the bend.
When reverse gear is engaged and the dipped beam headlights are on the two front fog lights illuminate automatically.
Note: when shifting from reverse gear into forward gear (e.g. during a parking manoeuvre), the two front fog lights remain lit until the vehicle speed exceeds approximately 6 mph (10 km/h).
When driving in fog or snow, or when transporting objects which are higher than the roof, the headlights do not come on automatically.
Switching on the fog lights remains the responsibility of the driver: the indicator lights on the instrument panel inform you whether the fog lights are lit (indicator light on) or not (indicator light not on).
