The headlight switch is located on the left side of the instrument panel. This switch controls the operation of the headlights, parking lights, instrument panel lights, instru- ment panel light dimming, interior lights and fog lights.
Rotate the headlight switch clockwise to the first detent for parking light and instrument panel light operation. Rotate the headlight switch to the second detent for headlight, parking light and instrument panel light operation. Push the switch to enable fog lights (if equipped).
The multifunction lever controls the operation of the turn signals, headlight beam selection and passing lights. The multifunction lever is located on the left side of the steering column.
Daytime Running Lights (DRL) — If Equipped
The Daytime Running Lights will turn on when the engine is started and will remain on unless the headlamps are turned to the on position, the parking brake is applied, or the engine is shut OFF.
NOTE: If allowed by law in the country in which the vehicle was purchased, the Daytime Running Lights can be turned on and off using the Uconnect System, refer to “Uconnect Settings” in “Multimedia” for further information.
High/Low Beam Switch
Push the multifunction lever away from you to switch the headlights to high beam. Pull the multifunction lever toward you to switch the headlights back to low beam.
Automatic High Beam — If Equipped
The Automatic High Beam Headlamp Control system provides increased forward lighting at night by automat- ing high beam control through the use of a digital camera mounted on the inside rearview mirror. This camera de- tects vehicle specific light and automatically switches from high beams to low beams until the approaching vehicle is out of view.
The Automatic High Beam Headlamp Control can be turned on or off by selecting “ON” under “Auto High Beam” within your Uconnect settings, as well as turning the headlight switch to the AUTO position. Refer to “Uconnect Settings” in “Multimedia” for further information.
Broken, muddy, or obstructed headlights and taillights of vehicles in the field of view will cause headlights to remain on longer (closer to the vehicle). Also, dirt, film, and other obstructions on the windshield or camera lens will cause the system to function improperly.
If the windshield or Automatic High Beam Headlamp Control mirror is replaced, the mirror must be re-aimed to ensure proper performance. See a local authorized dealer.
- Turn the headlight switch to the AUTO headlight posi- tion.
- Push the multifunction lever away from you (toward front of vehicle) to engage the high beam mode.
NOTE: This system will not activate until the vehicle is at or above 15 mph (24 km/h).
- Pull the multifunction lever toward you (or rearward in vehicle) to manually deactivate the system (normal operation of low beams).
- Push back on the multifunction lever to reactivate the system.
The Automatic High Beams can also be deactivated through the Uconnect system. Refer to “Uconnect Settings” in “Multimedia” for further information.
You can signal another vehicle with your headlights by lightly pulling the multifunction lever toward you. This will turn on the high beam headlights until the lever is released.
NOTE: If the multifunction lever is held in the flash-to pass position for more than 20 seconds, the high beams will shut off.
This system automatically turns the headlights on or off according to ambient light levels. To turn the system on, rotate the headlight switch counterclockwise to the AUTO position. When the system is on, the headlight time delay feature is also on. This means the headlights will stay on for up to 90 seconds after you place the ignition into the OFF position. The headlight time delay can be pro- grammed 0/30/60/90 seconds.
Refer to “Uconnect Settings” in “Multimedia” for further information.
To turn the automatic system off, move the headlight switch out of the AUTO position.
NOTE: The engine must be running before the headlights will come on in the automatic mode.
Turn the headlight switch knob to the first detent to turn the parking lights on. This also turns on all instrument panel lighting.
Headlights On With Wipers
When this feature is active, the headlights will turn on after the wipers are turned on if the headlight switch is placed in the AUTO position and programmable feature is set to on. In addition, the headlights will turn off when the wipers are turned off if they were turned on by this feature.
NOTE: The “Headlights On With Wipers” feature can be turned on or off using the Uconnect System. Refer to “Uconnect Settings” in “Multimedia” for further information.
Headlight Time Delay
This feature provides the safety of headlight illumination for up to 90 seconds when leaving your vehicle in an unlit area with the headlight switch in the O (off) position.
To activate the delay feature, turn OFF the ignition switch while the headlights are still on. Then, turn off the head- lights within 45 seconds. The delay interval begins when the headlight switch is turned off.
NOTE: The lights must be turned off within 45 seconds of turning the ignition OFF to activate this feature.
If you turn the headlights, park lights or ignition switch ON again, the system will cancel the delay.
If you turn the headlights off before the ignition, they will turn off in the normal manner.
NOTE: The Headlight Time Delay is programmable using the Uconnect System, refer to “Uconnect Settings” in “Multimedia” for further information.
If the headlights or parking lights are on after the ignition is placed in the OFF position, a chime will sound to alert the driver when the driver’s door is opened.
Fog Lights — If Equipped
The front fog light switch is built into the headlight switch.
Fog Light Switch
To activate the front fog lights, turn on the parking lights or the low beam headlights and push the headlight switch. To turn off the front fog lights, either push the headlight switch a second time or turn off the headlight switch.
An indicator light in the instrument cluster display illumi- nates when the fog lights are turned on.
NOTE: The fog lights will operate with the low beam headlights or parking lights on. However, selecting the high beam headlights will turn off the fog lights.
Tap the multifunction lever up or down once, without moving beyond the detent, and the turn signal (right or left) will flash three times then automatically turn off.
Move the multifunction lever up or down and the arrows on each side of the instrument cluster display flash to show proper operation of the front and rear turn signal lights.
If either light remains on and does not flash, or there is a very fast flash rate, check for a defective outside light bulb. If an indicator fails to light when the lever is moved, it would suggest that the indicator bulb is defective.
A “Turn Signal On” message will appear in the instru- ment cluster display and a continuous chime will sound if the vehicle is driven more than 1 mile (1.6 km) with either turn signal on.
