        Headlights and Taillights turn off When the ambient light is bright, the exterior lights automatically turn off.
  3. DIAGNOSIS


    1. When the main body ECU (multiplex network body ECU) detects a malfunction in the automatic light control system, Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs) are stored in memory.

    2. The DTCs can be read using the Global TechStream (GTS). For details, refer to the Repair Manual.
