What Is Automatic High Beam Control

The system turns on high beams if it is dark enough and no other traffic is present. If it detects an approaching vehicle’s headlamps or tail lamps, or street lighting ahead, the system turns the high beams off. Low beams remain on.

A camera sensor, centrally mounted behind the windshield of your vehicle, continuously monitors conditions to turn the high beams on and off.

Switching Automatic High Beam Control On and Off

Switch the system on or off using the information display.

Activating the Automatic High Beam Control

Ford Fusion. On and Off Switch the lighting control to the autolamps position to activate.

Note: Automatic high beams are not available when autolamps are not turned on.

When active, the high beams turn on if:

  • The ambient light level is low enough.
  • There is no traffic in front of your vehicle.
  • The vehicle speed is greater than approximately 32 mph (52 km/h).

When active, the high beams turn off if:

  • The ambient light level is high enough that high beams are not required.
  • The system detects an approaching vehicle's headlamps or tail lamps.
  • The system detects severe rain, snow or fog.
  • The camera is blocked.
  • The vehicle speed falls below approximately 27 mph (44 km/h).

Note: The deactivation speed is lower on curves.

Note: High beam reactivation may be delayed in certain curvy road situations.

Note: The system may not operate properly if the sensor is blocked. Keep the windshield free from obstruction or damage.

Note: The system may not operate properly in cold or inclement conditions. You can switch on the high beams by overriding the system.

Note: If the system detects a blockage, for example bird droppings, bug splatter, snow or ice, the system goes into low beam mode until you clear the blockage. A message may appear in the information display if the camera is blocked.

Note: Using much larger tires or equipping vehicle accessories such as snowplows can modify your vehicle's ride height and degrade automatic high beam control performance.
