Subaru Forester: Light control switch / High beam assist function (if equipped)

NOTE

  • The high beam assist function utilizes the stereo camera installed at the position of the front map lights.
  • For details on how to handle the stereo camera, refer to the Owner’s Manual supplement for the EyeSight system.

The high beam assist function automatically changes the headlight from high beam to low beam (or vice versa).

When all of the following conditions are met, the headlight will change to high beam.

  • When the vehicle speed increases to or above 20 mph (32 km/h).
  • There is no preceding or oncoming vehicle.
  • The forward area of the vehicle is dark.
  • The road does not have a sharp curve.

When any of the following conditions are met, the headlight will change to low beam.

  • When the vehicle speed decreases to or below 10 mph (16 km/h).
  • When the forward area of the vehicle is bright.
  • When there is a preceding or oncoming vehicle.
  • When the EyeSight system is malfunctioning or is temporarily stopped.

NOTE

  • Do not overestimate the capacity of the high beam assist function. The driver always has the responsibility to understand the surrounding situation, to drive safely, and to change the headlight mode manually if necessary.
  • The factory setting (default setting) for this function is set as “operational”. This setting can be changed to OFF (non-operation) at SUBARU dealers. For more details, contact a SUBARU dealer.
