Battery saver function

The purpose of this feature is to prevent the battery from being discharged.

The system automatically turns off the parking lights when the engine is turned off and the driverside door is opened (in that order).

With this feature, the parking lights will be turned off automatically if the driver parks on the side of the road at night. If necessary, to keep the lights on when the key is removed (smart key : engine is turned OFF), perform the following:

1) Open the driver-side door.

2) Turn the parking lights OFF and ON again using the light switch on the steering column.

Headlight escort function

If the key is removed from the ignition switch or placed in the ACC position or the LOCK/OFF position with the headlights ON, the headlights (and/or parking lights) remain on for about 5 minutes. However, if the driverТs door is opened and closed, the headlights are turned off after 15 seconds.

The headlights can be turned off by pressing the LOCK button on the remote key or smart key twice or turning the light switch to the OFF or AUTO position. However, if you turn the light switch to the AUTO position when it is dark outside, the headlights will not be turned off.

CAUTION

If the driver gets out of the vehicle through other doors (except the driverТs door), the battery saver function does not operate and the headlight escort function does not turn off automatically. Therefore, it causes the battery to be discharged. In this case, make sure to turn off the lamp before getting out of the vehicle.

Headlight welcome function

When the headlight switch is in the ON position or in the AUTO position and all doors (and tailgate) are closed and locked, if you press the door unlock button on the remote transmitter or smart key, the headlights will come on for about 15 seconds.

If the headlight switch is in the AUTO position, the function can only operate at night.

  • Press the door lock button.
  • Press the unlock button twice within 4 seconds.
  • Press the unlock button once more after 4 seconds.
