Daytime Running Lights

When the conditions listed below are met, the daytime running lights come on:
• The power mode is in ON.
• The headlight switch is off.
• The parking brake is released.

The lights remain on even if you set the parking brake. Setting the power mode to 
VEHICLE OFF will turn off the daytime running lights.

The daytime running lights go off once the headlight switch is turned on, or when 
the headlight switch is in AUTO

*

 and it is getting dark outside.

The high beam headlights return to the original brightness once the headlight 
switch is turned on.

Daytime Running Lights

The parking lights serve as daytime running lights.

The high beam headlights come on slightly dimmer 
than normal to serve as daytime running lights.

Auto High-Beam

Co

Auto High-Beam

*

Using a camera mounted to the inside of the windshield, 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.

1

Auto High-Beam

*

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, windshield frost, etc.).

Other light sources, such as street lights and 
electric billboards are illuminating the road ahead.

The brightness level of the road ahead constantly 
changes.

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.

Your vehicle is tilted with a heavy load in the rear.

If you find the timing of beam changes inconvenient 
for driving, change the headlight beams manually.

If you do not want the system to be activated at any 
time when the headlight switch is in AUTO, consult a 
dealer or disable the system.

Disabling or Re-enabling the System P. 196

The headlight switch is in AUTO.

The lever is in the low beam 
position.

The low beams are on and the 
system recognizes that you are 
driving at night.

The vehicle speed is above 45 mph 
(72 km/h).

The system operates when:

When the camera detects lights coming from a preceding or oncoming vehicle, the 
headlights remain in low beam.

When the camera detects no lights coming from a preceding or oncoming vehicle, 
the headlights change to high beam.

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.

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.

Light Switches P. 189

The high beams remain on unless:
• You have been driving below 45 mph (72 km/h) for an extended amount of time.
• The speed of the vehicle drops below 30 mph (48 km/h).
• The windshield wipers have been running at a high speed for more than a few 

seconds.

• You enter a well lit location.

The high beams come back on once the condition that caused them to turn off no 
longer exists.

If needed, you can temporarily turn the high beams 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 high beams back on, repeat one 
of the procedures.

Operating the System

1

Operating the System

For the auto high-beam to work properly:

Do not place an object that reflects light on the 
dashboard.

Keep the windshield around the camera clean. 
When cleaning the windshield, be careful not to 
apply windshield cleanser to the camera lens.

Do not attach an object, sticker or film to the area 
around the camera.

Do not touch the camera lens.

If the camera receives a strong impact, or repairing of 
the area near the camera is required, consult a dealer.

If the Some Driver Assist Systems Cannot 
Operate: Camera Temperature Too High
 message 
appears:

Use the climate control system to cool down the 
interior and, if necessary, also use defroster mode 
with the airflow directed toward the camera.

Start driving the vehicle to lower the windshield 
temperature, which cools down the area around 
the camera.

If the Some Driver Assist Systems Cannot 
Operate: Clean Front Windshield
 message 
appears:

Park your vehicle in a safe place, and clean the 
windshield. If the message does not disappear after 
you have cleaned the windshield and driven for a 
while, have your vehicle checked by a dealer.

NOTICE

Do not use the wipers when the windshield is dry.
The windshield will get scratched, or the rubber 
blades will get damaged.

NOTICE

In cold weather, the blades may freeze to the 
windshield.
Operating the wipers in this condition may damage 
the wipers. Use the defroster or heated windshield

to warm the windshield, then turn the wipers on.

If the vehicle speeds up while the wipers are 
operating intermittently, the length of the wipe 
interval shortens.
When the vehicle speeds up, the wiper operation’s 
shortest delay setting ( ) and the LO setting become 
the same.

Turn the washers off if no washer fluid comes out.
