Instrument and switch lighting / Headlight range control


Fig. 58 Instrument panel: regulation for instrument and switch illumination and headlight range control

Instrument and switch lighting


When the headlights are switched on, the brightness of the instruments and switch lighting can be regulated to suit your requirements by turning the thumb wheel ⇒ fig. 58 

. Those vehicles
fitted with xenon gas discharge headlights are fitted with an automatic headlight range system.

Headlight range control


Using the electrical headlight range control,

you can adjust the headlight range
to the load level that is being carried in the vehicle. In this way it is possible to avoid dazzling oncoming traffic more than necessary. At the same time, the driver has the best possible lighting for the road ahead using the correct headlight settings. The headlights can only be adjusted when the dipped beam is switched on. To lower the beam, turn the thumb wheel down

 from the basic setting 0.


Dynamic headlight range control

Vehicles with gas discharge lamps

(xenon lamps) are equipped with dynamic headlight range control.

When you switch on the lights, their range regulates itself according to the vehicle load. Vehicles with gas discharge lamps do not have headlight range control.

Rear window heating


Fig. 59 Instrument panel: heated rear window switch

The rear window heating only works when the engine is running. When it is switched on, a lamp lights up on the switch. After 20 minutes, the heating device of the rear window switches off automatically. If the button is pushed again, after 20 minutes the rear window heater stays on continuously until the ignition is switched off.


For the sake of the environment

The rear window heater should be disconnected as soon as the glass is demisted. By saving electrical power you can also save fuel.


Note

To avoid possible damage to the battery, an automatic temporary disconnection of this function is possible, coming back on when normal operating conditions are reestablished.

Hazard warning lights

The hazard warning lights are used to draw the attention of other road users to your vehicle in emergencies.

warning lights also work when the ignition is switched off.

WARNING
