LIGHTING SYSTEM SYSTEM DESCRIPTION


  1. AUTOMATIC LIGHT CONTROL SYSTEM


    1. When the light control switch is in the AUTO position, the automatic light control system detects ambient light levels and controls the low beam headlights, clearance lights, taillights and license plate lights.

  2. LIGHT AUTO TURN-OFF SYSTEM (for Driver Door-linked Light Auto Turn off System)


    1. The light auto turn-off system is used to prevent the exterior lights from being accidentally left on (low beam headlights, high beam headlights, front fog lights, rear fog light*, taillights, clearance lights and license plate lights).

      The lights that will turn off will vary according to the position of the light control switch as shown in the table below.

      Switch Condition Outline
      Light control switch in AUTO position While the exterior lights are turned on, this control automatically turns them off when the engine switch is turned from on (IG) to off.
      Light control switch in tail or head position

      While the exterior lights are turned on, this control automatically turns off only the low beam headlights, high beam headlights and the front fog lights when the engine switch is turned from on (IG) to off.

      Tech Tips

      Taillights, clearance lights, license plate lights and rear fog light* remain on.

  3. LIGHT AUTO TURN-OFF SYSTEM (except Driver Door-linked Light Auto Turn-off System)


    1. The light auto turn-off system is used to prevent the exterior lights from being accidentally left on (headlights, front fog lights, rear fog light*, taillights, clearance lights and license plate lights).

    2. When all of the following conditions are met, the headlights, front fog lights, rear fog light*, taillights, clearance lights and license plate lights turn off:


      • The engine switch is turned from on (IG) to off.

      • The headlights, front fog lights, rear fog light*, taillights, clearance lights and license plate lights are on.

      • The driver door is opened.

        *: w/ Rear Fog Light

  4. DAYTIME RUNNING LIGHT SYSTEM


    1. The daytime running light system is designed to automatically illuminate the daytime running lights (high-intensity clearance lights) during the daytime to make the vehicle more visible to other vehicles.


      • This system is controlled by the main body ECU (multiplex network body ECU).

      • There are 2 LED type clearance light circuits in headlight. One is for a conventional low-intensity clearance light that illuminates with the taillights, and the other is for the high-intensity clearance light that is used for the DRL system.

      • This system is enabled when the following conditions are met:


        • The engine switch is on (IG).

        • The engine speed signal is input (engine running).

        • The turn signal switch and hazard warning light switch is off.

        • The light control switch is in the off* or AUTO position (and the taillight are not turned on via the automatic light control system).

          *: w/ Light Control Switch Off Position

        • The parking brake switch is off.

  5. WELCOME LIGHT ILLUMINATION CONTROL


    1. When a wireless door unlock operation or entry door unlock operation is performed at nighttime, the clearance lights illuminate for 15 seconds.

  6. FOLLOW ME HOME SYSTEM (w/ Follow Me Home System)


    1. The follow me home system is designed to illuminate the low beam headlights for approximately 30 seconds after the vehicle is parked.


      1. This system is controlled by the main body ECU (multiplex network body ECU).

      2. This system is enabled when the following conditions are met:


        • The engine switch is off.

        • The light control switch is in the AUTO position.

        • The light control switch is pulled to flash the headlights once.

  7. LANE CHANGE FLASHER CONTROL


    1. This control is controlled by the combination meter assembly.

    2. When moving the headlight dimmer switch assembly (turn signal switch) to the lane change position (it is not necessary to hold the switch) during a lane change, the turn signal light flashes a specified number of times.

    3. While the turn signal light is flashing after the headlight dimmer switch assembly (turn signal switch) is moved to the lane change position (it is not necessary to hold the switch), the turn signal light turns off if the headlight dimmer switch assembly (turn signal switch) is moved in the opposite direction.

  8. EMERGENCY BRAKE SIGNAL


    1. During emergency braking, the emergency brake signal flashes the stop lights to alert other drivers and reduce the possibility of a rear-end collision.
