Automatic lighting functions

Various automatic lighting functions are also available depending on options:

- guide-me-home lighting,
- cornering lighting,
- welcome lighting,

  • forwards a second time to switch on the rear foglamp,
  • rearwards a first time to switch off the rear foglamp,
  • rearwards a second time to switch of the front fog lamps.

When the headlamps switch off with automatic illumination of headlamps (AUTO model) or when the dipped beam headlamps are switched off manually, the foglamps and sidelamps remain on.

Turn the ring rearwards to switch off the foglamps, the sidelamps will then switch off.

In good or rainy weather, both day and night, the front foglamps and the rear foglamp are prohibited. In these situations, the power of their beams may dazzle other drivers. They should only be used in fog or snow.

In these weather conditions, it is your responsibility to switch on the foglamps and dipped beam headlamps manually as the sunshine sensor may detect sufficient light.

Do not forget to switch off the front foglamps and the rear foglamp when they are no longer necessary.

Switching off the lamps when the ignition is switched off

On switching off the ignition, all of the lamps turn off immediately, except for dipped beam if guide-me-home lighting is activated.

Switching on the lamps after the ignition is switched off

To reactivate the lighting control, rotate the ring to the "0" position - lamps off, then to the desired position. On opening the driver's door a temporary audible signal warns the driver that the lighting is on. The lamps, with the exception of the sidelamps, switch off automatically after a maximum duration of thirty minutes to prevent discharging of the battery.
