Auto-light control

When the headlight switch is in the position and the ignition is
switched ON, the light sensor senses the surrounding lightness or darkness and automatically turns the headlights, other exterior lights and instrument panel illumination on or off (see chart above).

CAUTION

  • Do not shade the light sensor by adhering a sticker or a label on the windscreen.

    Otherwise the light sensor will not operate correctly

  • The light sensor also works as a rain sensor for the auto-wiper control. Keep hands and scrapers clear of the windscreen when the wiper lever is in the position and the
    ignition is switched ON as fi ngers could be pinched or the wipers and wiper blades damaged when the wipers activate automatically. If you are going to clean the windscreen, be sure the wipers are turned off completely — this is particularly important when clearing ice and snow — when it is particularly tempting to leave the engine running.

NOTE

  • The headlights, other exterior lights and instrument panel illumination may not turn off immediately even if the surrounding area becomes well-lit because the light sensor determines that it is night time if the surrounding area is continuously dark for several minutes such as inside long tunnels, traffi c jams inside tunnels, or in indoor parking lots.

     In this case, the lights turn off if the light switch is turned to the position.


  • When the headlight switch is in the position and the ignition is
    switched to ACC or the ignition is switched off, the headlights, other exterior lights and instrument panel illumination will turn off.
  • The instrument panel illumination can be adjusted by rotating the knob in the instrument cluster. Also, the antidazzle mode can be changed by rotating the knob until a beep sound is heard. To adjust the brightness of the instrument panel illumination: Refer to Instrument panel Illumination on page 4-31 .
  • The sensitivity of the AUTO lights may be changed by an Authorised Mazda Repairer.

    Refer to Personalisation Features on page 9-13 .
