    Automatic Hi-Beam System (formerly Intellibeam)

    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 think dealer is correct. My platinum doesn't have it.

    I have a platinum xts4 with a build date of August 2012. When I go to settings then lighting, I only have
    two options:

    Vehicle locator lights
    Exit lighting

    Auto high beam and daytime tails lights are not available

    WOW! The New ATS has auto high beam....can't believe it isn't offered on XTS! It activates after 40 mph speeds and has auto high beam switch.

    Though checking your manual online, under 6.2 it talks about having that option on your XTS.....Auto high beam indicator...

    Auto High Beam

    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:

    Lighting
    . 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.
    Exit Lighting
    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.

    Any suggestions?

    thanks

    Button to the left of your Onstar button. Usually the button the farthest lest like on your STS.

    Re: Auto High Beam

    Your vehicle probably doesn't have it. Manuals are often wrong. Check out this thread: http://www.cadillacforums.com/forums...tellibeam.html

    That is a bummer. Maybe a future software update?

    Re: Auto High Beam

    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 . . . ?

    I think a future upgrade to the CUE may give us the option.....I will ask the dealer when I go in for my first oil change.

    I have a Premium ATS and I don't think I have Auto High Beam. Are you sure the new ATS has it? I know the manual says we do but I haven't been able to find it.

    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.

    Any idea on whether or not this feature is enabled yet on the XTS?
