This feature automatically selects and deselects the high beam, under specific conditions of road lighting and in the absence of other vehicle’s lights. The system is only active when the ambient light drops below a predetermined level.


It is not recommended that Auto high beam is used while driving off road. For Auto high beam to become operational, the main lighting switch must be in the AUTO position (5), with low beam headlamps selected.

The Instrument panel warning lamp illuminates when Auto high beam is selected. See AUTO HIGH BEAM ASSIST (AHBA) (GREEN).

Auto high beam will activate only when the vehicle's speed exceeds 25 mph (40 km/h). The system will deactivate when the vehicle's speed drops below 15 mph (24 km/h).

To manually select high beam, move the stalk to the high beam position as normal. To return to Auto high beam, move the stalk back to the central position.

To manually override to low beam from high beam, pull the stalk to the flash position (2) and Auto high beam will be canceled. To return to Auto high beam, push the stalk to the high beam position (1) and then return it to the central position.

To turn off Auto high beam, turn the main lighting control from AUTO to headlamps.

This feature can be disabled/enabled via the Vehicle Set-up menu. See INSTRUMENT PANEL MENU.

The following may affect the operation of Auto high beam:

  • Highly reflective road signs.

  • Dimly lit road users, for example cyclists or pedestrians.

  • Adverse weather conditions, for example rain or fog.

  • Dirty or obscured sensor.

  • Dirty, damaged, or fogged windshield.

  • Oncoming vehicles partially obscured by a central highway barrier.


The system cannot be relied upon to activate or deactivate high beam in all possible circumstances. It remains the driver’s responsibility to make sure of the correct use of the headlamps at all times.


Make sure the forward facing sensors on the back of the rear view mirror are not blocked or obstructed.
