Rotating the light switch turns the lights on and off, regardless of the position of the ignition switch*1.

Models without smart entry system

If you remove the key from the ignition switch while the lights are on, a chime sounds when the driver's door is opened.

Models with smart entry system

If you leave the power mode in VEHICLE OFF (LOCK) while the lights are on, a chime sounds when the driver's door is opened.

All models

Do not leave the lights on when the engine is off because it will cause the battery to discharge.

If you sense that the level of the headlights is abnormal, have your vehicle inspected by a dealer.

■Automatic Lighting Control

Automatic lighting control can be used when the ignition switch is in ON (II)*1.

When you turn the light switch to AUTO, the headlights and other exterior lights will switch on and off automatically depending on the ambient brightness.

Operating the Switches Around the Steering Wheel


We recommend that you turn on the lights manually when driving at night, in a dense fog, or in dark areas such as long tunnels or parking facilities.

The light sensor is in the location shown below.

Do not cover this light sensor with anything; otherwise, the automatic lighting system may not work properly.

*1: Models with the smart entry system have an ENGINE START/STOP button instead of an ignition switch.

■Headlight Integration with Wipers*

The headlights automatically come on when the wipers are used several times within a certain intervals with the headlight switch in AUTO.

The headlights automatically go off a few minutes later if the wipers are stopped.

This feature activates while the headlights are off in AUTO.

The instrument panel brightness does not change when the headlights come on.

When the ambient light is at dark, the automatic lighting control feature overrides, and the headlights come on with or without the wipers sweeping more than several times.

■Automatic Lighting Off Feature

The headlights, all other exterior lights, and the instrument panel lights turn off 15 seconds after you remove the key or set the power mode to VEHICLE OFF (LOCK), take the remote with you, and close the driver's door.

If you turn the ignition switch to LOCK (0)*1 with the headlight switch on, but do not open the door, the lights turn off after 10 minutes (3 minutes, if the switch is in the AUTO position).

The lights turn on again when you unlock or open the driver's door. If you unlock the door, but do not open it within 15 seconds, the lights go off. If you open the driver's door, you will hear a lights on reminder chime.

*1: Models with the smart entry system have an ENGINE START/STOP button instead of an ignition switch.
