LIGHTING CONTROL

Lighting control operation:

  1. Neutral position of the control: The lighting system operates automatically dependent on the ambient level of light. During daylight, the Daytime Running Lights (DRL) automatically switches on. During low ambient light, the headlights switches on automatically. To manually switch on any lighting functions, rotate the lighting control to the required position and release. After 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.

    NOTES

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

  5. AUTO: Rotate the lighting control to this position to select AUTO lights. When ambient light fades and the ignition is switched on, the side lights, rear lights, dipped beam headlights, and number plate lights switch on automatically. Headlight courtesy delay, Auto High Beam Assist (AHBA), Adaptive Driving Beam (ADB), Adaptive Front lighting System (AFS), and wiper detection may also be activated.
