LIGHTING CONTROL

  1. Neutral position of the lighting control: The lighting system operates automatically, dependent on the ambient level of light. During daylight, the Daytime Running Lights (DRL) automatically switch on. During night time the headlight switches on automatically. Rotate the lighting control to the required position and release, to manually switch on any lighting functions. When released, the lighting control returns to the neutral position.

  2. Side lights: Rotate the lighting control to this position to switch the side lights on. The instrument panel warning lamp illuminates. See SIDE LIGHTS (GREEN).

  3. Headlights OFF: Rotate the lighting control to this position to switch the headlights off.

  4. Headlights: Rotate the lighting control to this position to switch the headlights on.

  5. AUTO: Rotate the lighting control to this position to select auto lights. Selecting AUTO causes the lighting system to operate according to ambient conditions. Headlight courtesy delay, Auto High Beam Assist (AHBA) and wiper detection may also be activated.

    NOTES

    Do not use high beam where it may distract other road users.

  6. High beam: With the headlights on, push and release the lighting control to select high beam. Push and release the lighting control again to deselect high beam. The instrument panel warning lamp illuminates. See HIGH BEAM (BLUE).

  7. High beam flash: Pull the lighting control toward the steering wheel and release to flash the high beam on and off. High beam remains on for as long as the lighting control is held.

    NOTES

    Low exterior light levels, caused by adverse weather conditions, may also cause the auto lights to activate.

  8. Front fog lights: Turn the lighting control away from the steering wheel, and release to switch off the front fog lights. Turn the lighting control away from the steering wheel again, and release to switch off the front fog lights. The instrument panel warning light illuminates. See FRONT FOG LIGHTS (GREEN).

  9. Rear fog lights: Operate only while the headlights or front fog lights are selected. Turn the lighting control toward the steering wheel, and release to switch on the rear fog lights. Turn the lighting control toward the steering wheel again, and release to switch off the rear fog lights. The instrument panel warning lamp illuminates. See REAR FOG LIGHTS (AMBER).
