NOTICE

Opening the moonroof in below freezing 
temperature or when it is covered with snow or ice 
can damage the moonroof panel or motor.

The moonroof can be operated for up to 10 minutes 
after you set the power mode to VEHICLE OFF.
Opening either front door cancels this function.

When resistance is detected, the auto reverse 
function causes the moonroof to change directions, 
then stop. Auto reverse stops sensing when the 
moonroof is almost closed to ensure that it fully 
closes. Make sure that all objects, including fingers, 
are clear of the moonroof.

You can use the remote transmitter or the key to

Auto High-Beam

The front wide view 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.

1

Auto High-Beam

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.

2

Front Wide View Camera

 P. 551

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.

1

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 at a high speed.

The camera has detected a dense fog.

Switching to high beam:

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

Your vehicle speed is 25 mph (40 
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.

Switching to low beam:

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

Your vehicle speed is 15 mph (24 
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.

Camera temperature too high

 message appears:

Use the climate control system to cool down the 
interior and, if necessary, also use defroster mode 
with the airflow directed toward the camera.

Start driving the vehicle to lower the windshield 
temperature, which cools down the area around 
the camera.

If the 

Some driver assist systems cannot operate: 

Clean front windshield or poor viewing 
conditions.

 message appears:

Park your vehicle in a safe place, and make sure the 
windshield is clean.
Clean the windshield if it is dirty. If the message
