Toyota Venza: Automatic High Beam

The Automatic High Beam uses an in-vehicle camera sensor to assess the brightness of streetlights, the lights of oncoming and preceding vehicles, etc., and automatically turns high beam on or off as necessary.

 - Activating the Automatic High Beam system


Push the lever away from you with the headlight switch in position when the “ENGINE START STOP”
switch is in IGNITION ON mode (vehicles with smart key system) or the engine switch is in the “ON” position (vehicles without smart key system).

The Automatic High Beam indicator will come on when the headlights are turned on automatically to indicate that the system is active.

 - Turning the high beam on/off manually

Switching to low beam


Pull the lever to original position.

Switching to high beam


Turn the light switch to position.


 - High beam automatic turning on or off conditions

When all of the following conditions are fulfilled, high beam will be automatically turned on (after approximately 1 second):

• Vehicle speed is above approximately 20 mph (32 km/h).

• The area ahead of the vehicle is dark.

• There are no oncoming or preceding vehicles with headlights or tail lights turned on.

If any of the following conditions are fulfilled, high beam will be automatically turned off:

• Vehicle speed drops below approximately 20 mph (32 km/h).

• The area ahead of the vehicle is not dark.

• Oncoming or preceding vehicles have headlights or tail lights turned on.

 - Limitations of the Automatic High Beam

Do not rely on the Automatic High Beam. Always drive safely, taking care to observe your surroundings and turning high beam on or off manually if necessary.

 - Camera sensor detection information

• High beam may not be automatically turned off in the following situations:

• When oncoming vehicles suddenly appear from a curve.

• When the vehicle is cut in front of by another.

• High beam may be turned off if an oncoming vehicle that is using fog lights without using the headlights is detected.

• Houselights, streetlights, red traffic signals, and illuminated billboards or signs may cause the high beam to turn off.

• The following factors may affect the amount of time taken to turn high beam on or off:

• The brightness of headlights, fog lights, and tail lights of oncoming and preceding vehicles
• Road conditions (wetness, ice, snow etc.) • The number of passengers and amount of baggage

• High beam may be turned on or off when unexpected by the driver.

• In the situations below, the system may not be able to correctly detect the surrounding brightness levels, and may flash or expose nearby pedestrians to the high beam. Therefore, you should consider turning the high beam on or off manually rather than relying on the Automatic High Beam system.

• In bad weather (rain, snow, fog, sandstorms etc.) • The windshield is obscured by fog, mist, ice, dirt etc.

• The windshield is cracked or damaged.

• The inside rear view mirror or camera sensor is deformed or dirty.

• Surrounding brightness levels are equal to those of headlights, tail lights or fog lights.

• Vehicles ahead have headlights that are either switched off, dirty, are changing color, or are not aimed properly.

• When driving through an area of intermittently changing brightness and darkness • When frequently and repeatedly driving ascending/descending roads, or roads with rough, bumpy or uneven surfaces (such as stone-paved roads, gravel tracks etc.) • When frequently and repeatedly taking curves or driving on a winding road • There is a highly reflective object ahead of the vehicle, such as a sign or a mirror.

• The vehicle’s headlights are damaged or dirty.

• The vehicle is listing or tilting, due to a flat tire, a trailer being towed etc.

• The Automatic High Beam indicator is flashing.

• The high beam and low beam are repeatedly being switched between in an abnormal manner.

• The driver believes that the high beam may be causing problems or distress to other drivers or pedestrians nearby.

 - If the Automatic High Beam indicator flashes..

.

It may indicate a malfunction in the system. Contact your Toyota dealer.

Vehicles with smart key system:

When the “ENGINE START STOP” switch is turned off, the sensitivity will be returned to its normal level.

Vehicles without smart key system:

When the engine switch is turned to the “LOCK” position, the sensitivity will be returned to its normal level.

NOTICE
