When driving on the left in a left-hand drive vehicle (or vice versa), drivers must readjust their lights throughout their stay .

Automatic main beam headlights

Depending on the vehicle, this system switches the main beam headlights on and off automatically. The function uses a camera located behind the interior rear-view mirror to detect vehicles that are following and coming in the opposite direction.

The main beam headlights come on automatically if:

  • exterior light is weak;
  • no other vehicles or lighting are detected;
  • the vehicle speed is above approximately 30 mph (40 km/h).

If any of the above conditions are not fulfilled, the system switches to dipped beam headlights.

The "automatic main beam headlights" system should under no circumstances be used to replace driver attention and responsibility with regard to vehicle lighting and adapting to light, visibility and traffic conditions.

Exterior lighting and signals

The system may encounter difficulties under certain conditions, including:
  • extreme weather conditions (rain, snow, fog, etc.);
  • obstruction in front of the windscreen or camera;
  • when a following or oncoming vehicle has weak or hidden lighting;
  • incorrect settings for the front headlights;
  • reflective systems;
  • ...

Activation

Turn ring 3 until the AUTO symbol is opposite mark 2.

Push stalk 1 to activate the main beam headlights. The warning light comes on on the instrument panel.

Deactivation

  • Move stalk 1 towards you again;
  • or turn ring 3 to a position other than AUTO ;
  • or, depending on the vehicle, on the multifunction screen: select the "Vehicle" menu, followed by "Driving assistance", "Automatic main beam lights", then choose "OFF".

Daytime running lights function

The daytime running lights come on automatically with no action on stalk 1 when the engine is started, and they go off once the engine is switched off.

Operating faults

When the message "Check lighting" with warning light is displayed and warning light   flashes on the instrument panel, this indicates that there is a lighting fault.

Consult an approved dealer.

Switching off the lights

There are two possibilities:

  • manually, move ring 3 to position 0;

  • automatically, the lights will go out when the engine is switched off, the driver's door is opened or the vehicle is locked. In this case, the next time the engine is started the lights will be switched back on according to the position of the ring 3.

Lights-on reminder buzzer

A warning beep sounds when the driver's door is opened to warn you that the lights are still on.

"See-me-home lighting" function

This function allows you to briefly switch on the dipped beam headlights (to provide light when opening a gate, etc.).

With the engine and lights switched off and the ring 3 in position 0 or AUTO, pull the stalk 1 towards you: the dipped beam headlights come on for approximately 30 seconds. To increase this duration, you may pull the stalk up to four times (total time limited to approximately 2 minutes). The message "Follow me home for _ _ _" along with the time the lights will be on for is displayed on the instrument panel to confirm this action. You can then lock your vehicle.

To switch off the lights before they go out automatically, turn ring 3 to any position, then return it to the AUTO position .

Welcome and goodbye function (depending on the vehicle)

Once the function is activated, the daytime running lights and the rear side light light up automatically upon detecting the RENAULT card or when the vehicle is unlocked.

They switch off automatically:

  • approximately one minute after lighting up;
  • when starting the engine based on the position of the lighting stalk; or
  • upon locking the vehicle.

Exterior lighting and signals

Operation of the fog lights depends on the exterior lighting position selected, and an indicator light will light up on the instrument panel.

Rear fog lights

Turn centre ring 5 on the stalk until the symbol faces mark 4, then release it.

Operation of the fog lights depends on the exterior lighting selected, and an indicator light will light up on the instrument panel.
