I just got Premium XTS. Manual (section 6-2) describes Automatic Hi-Beams but not working on my car/ can't activate it. Dealer tells me it's not on the car. Does anyone have it for certain or is the dealer correct? Sorely disappointed if it's not there. I had it on my DTS and loved it.
I have a Black on Black Platinum XTS. I had an STS before the XTS. I really liked the auto high beam feature on the STS. I thought the XTS had it but I cant get it to work. In digging into the owners manual I see the following options:
. Vehicle Locator Lights
. Exit Lighting
. Auto High Beam
. Daytime Tail Lights
Vehicle Locator Lights
This feature will flash the exterior
lights when K on the Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) transmitter is pressed to locate the vehicle.
Press Vehicle Locator Lights. Press to select Off or On. Press 0 to go back to the last menu.
This allows the selection of how long the exterior lamps stay on when leaving the vehicle when it is dark outside.
￼Select the Lighting menu and the following will be displayed:
Select the Language menu and the
following will be displayed:
￼Press to select the language. Press 0 to go back to the last menu.
5-48 Instruments and Controls
￼￼￼Press Exit Lighting. Press to select Off, 30 Seconds, 60 Seconds,
or 120 Seconds. Press 0 to go back to the last menu.
Auto High Beam
This allows the Auto High Beam to be turned on or off.
Press Auto High Beam. Press to select Off or On. On some vehicles select Off, Normal Sensitivity,
or Low Sensitivity. Press 0 to go back to the last menu.
Daytime Tail Lights
This feature allows the taillamps to be on during the day.
Press Daytime Tail Lights. Press to select Off or On. Press 0 to go back to the last menu.
I looked at my options and the Auto High Beam option is not in the menu.
As I was looking at the online manual for something else, I came upon the section discussing the Auto High Beam system and thought of your thread here. Have you thoroughly read pages 6-2 and 6-3 of the manual? There is a special icon (with an A) that appears in the instrument panel if the High Beam system is on automatic. Not sure if the icon is there all the time or only when the high beams are auto activated. As you'll read, it has to be dark enough outside and you have to be going over 25 MPH with no other cars around before the high beams come on automatically. That may also be the only time the special icon (with an A) appears.
I wonder if you actually DO have it but just don't have the option in the DIC to adjust it . . . ?
Re: Automatic Hi-Beam System (formerly Intellibeam)
Have a premium XTS and the book says how to activate. have looked at info on xts and there no mention of auto high beams. Car with so much hard to believe its not there. Maybe all it needs is a software update to include the option.
