Auto High-Beam (High Beam Support System)

The front sensor camera detects the light sources ahead of the vehicle such as the 
lights of a preceding or oncoming vehicle, or street lights. When you are driving at 
night, the system automatically switches the headlights between low beam and high 
beam depending on the situation.

When all of the following conditions have been met, the auto high-beam indicator 
comes on and the auto high-beam is activated.

The power mode is in ON.

The light switch is in 

AUTO

.

The lever is in the low beam position.

The headlights have been automatically 
activated.

It is dark outside the vehicle.

If the auto high-beam indicator does not come on even when all the conditions have 
been met, carry out the following procedure and the indicator will come on.

Pull the lever toward you for flashing the high beams then release it while driving.

Auto High-Beam (High Beam Support System)

The auto high-beam system does not always operate 
in every situation. This system is just for assisting the 
driver. Always observe your surroundings and switch 
the headlights between high beam and low beam 
manually if necessary.

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

The range and the distance at which the camera can 
recognize varies depending on conditions 
surrounding your vehicle.

Regarding the handling of the camera mounted to 
the inside of the windshield, refer to the following.

Front Sensor Camera

 P. 465

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 the 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.

Automatic switching between high-beam and low-beam

When auto high-beam is active, the headlights switch between high beam and low 
beam based on the following conditions.

Manual switching between high-beam and low-beam

If you want to manually switch the headlights between high beam and low beam, 
follow either of the procedures below. Note that when you do this, the auto high-
beam indicator will turn off and the auto high-beam will be deactivated.

Using the lever:

Pull the lever toward you for flashing the high beams then release it within about 
one second while driving.

Switching to high beam:

Switching to low beam:

All of the following conditions must 
be met before the high beams turn 
on.

Your vehicle speed is 45 mph 
(72 km/h) or more.

There are no preceding or 
oncoming vehicle with headlights 
or taillights turned on.

There are few street lights on the 
road ahead.

One of the following conditions 
must be met before the low beams 
turn on.

Your vehicle speed is 30 mph 
(48 km/h) or less.

There is a preceding or oncoming 
vehicle with headlights or 
taillights turned on.

There are many street lights on 
the road ahead.

How to Use the Auto High-Beam

In the following cases, the auto high-beam system 
may not switch the headlights properly or the 
switching timing may be changed. In case of the 
automatic switching operation does not fit for your 
driving habits, please switch the headlights manually.

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.).

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

The brightness level of the road ahead constantly 
changes.

The road is bumpy or has many curves.

A vehicle suddenly appears 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.

A traffic sign, mirror, or other reflective object 
ahead is reflecting strong light toward the vehicle.

The oncoming vehicle frequently disappears under 
roadside trees or behind median barriers.

The preceding or oncoming vehicle is a motorcycle, 
bicycle, mobility scooter, or other small vehicle.

The auto high-beam system keeps the headlight low 
beam when:

Windshield wipers are operating.

The camera has detected a dense fog.
