The system does not relieve you of your responsibility to drive with due care and attention. You may need to override the system if it does not turn the high beams on or off.|
Do not use the system in poor visibility, for example fog, heavy rain, spray or snow.
You may need to override the system during inclement weather.
The system may not switch the high beams off if the lights of oncoming vehicles are hidden by obstacles, for example guard rails.
Inspect and replace the windshield wiper blades regularly to make sure the camera sensor has a clear view. The windshield wiper blades must be the correct length.
The system turns on high beams if it is dark enough and no other traffic is present. If it detects an approaching vehicle’s headlamps or tail lamps, or street lighting ahead, the system turns off high beams before they can distract other road users. Low beams remain on.
Keep the windshield free from obstructions such as bird droppings, insects and snow or ice.
The system may detect reflective road signs as oncoming traffic and switch the headlamps to low beam.
Always fit original parts when replacing headlamp bulbs. Other bulbs may reduce system performance.
