Auto High-Beam (High Beam Support System)  
Using a camera mounted to the inside of the windscreen, this system detects light  
sources ahead of the vehicle. Depending on the light source, the system  
automatically switches the headlights to high beam for optimal visibility at night.  
1Auto High-Beam (High Beam Support System)  
The auto high-beam determines when to change the  
headlight beams by responding to the brightness of  
the lights ahead of your vehicle. In the following  
cases, the system may not respond to the lights  
properly:  
The brightness of the lights from the preceding or  
oncoming vehicle is intense or poor.  
Visibility is poor due to the weather (rain, snow,  
fog, windscreen frost, etc.).  
The system operates when:  
The headlight switch is in AUTO.  
The lever is in the low beam  
position.  
The low beams are on and the  
system recognises that you are  
driving at night.  
Other light sources, such as streetlights and electric  
billboards are illuminating the road ahead.  
The brightness level of the road ahead constantly  
changes.  
The vehicle speed is above 40 km/h  
(25 mph).  
The road is bumpy or with many curves.  
A vehicle cuts in front of you, or a vehicle in front  
of you is not in the preceding or oncoming  
direction.  
How it works  
When the camera detects lights coming from a preceding or oncoming vehicle, the  
headlights remain in low beam.  
Your vehicle is tilted with a heavy load in the rear.  
When the camera detects no lights coming from a preceding or oncoming vehicle,  
the headlights change to high beam.  
If you find the timing of beam changes inconvenient  
for driving, change the headlight beams manually.  
The view angle or distance that the camera can detect lights ahead differs  
depending on conditions, such as the brightness of the lights and the weather.  
If you do not want the system to be activated at any  
time when the headlight switch is in AUTO, consult a  
dealer.

1Operating the System  
Operating the System  
For the auto high-beam to work properly:  
Do not place an object that reflects light on the  
dashboard.  
Keep the windscreen around the camera clean.  
Do not attach an object, sticker or film to the area  
around the camera.  
To activate the system, turn the headlight  
switch to AUTO and then set the headlights  
to low beam. The auto high-beam indicator  
will come on.

If the camera receives a strong impact, or repairing of  
the area near the camera is required, consult a dealer.  
Headlight Switch  
If the  
message appears:  
Use the climate control system to cool down the  
interior and, if necessary, also use demister mode  
with the airflow directed towards the camera.  
Start driving the vehicle to lower the windscreen  
temperature, which cools down the area around  
the camera.  
The high beams remain on unless:  
You have been driving below 24 km/h (15 mph) for an extended amount of time.  
The speed of the vehicle drops below 10 km/h (6 mph).  
The windscreen wipers have been running at a high speed for more than a few  
seconds.  
You enter a well lit location.  
If the  
message appears:  
Park your vehicle in a safe place, and clean the  
windscreen. If the message does not disappear  
after you have cleaned the windscreen and driven  
for a while, have your vehicle checked by a dealer.  
If needed, you can temporarily turn the system off manually. Turn on the high  
beams by pushing the lever forward until you hear a click, or flash the high beams  
once by pulling the lever toward you. To turn the system back on, pull and hold the  
lever towards you for a few seconds.
