Peugeot 2008: Lighting and visibility / Automatic headlamp dipping

When the ring is in the "AUTO” position, this system automatically switches between dipped and main beam headlamps according to the lighting and traffic conditions, using a camera located at the top of the windscreen.

Peugeot 2008. Automatic headlamp dipping

Peugeot 2008. Automatic headlamp dipping This system is a driving aid.

The driver remains responsible for the vehicle's lighting, its correct use for the prevailing conditions of light, visibility and traffic, and for observation of driving and vehicle regulations.

Peugeot 2008. Automatic headlamp dipping The system becomes operational when the vehicle exceeds 16 mph (25 km/h).

When the speed falls below 9 mph (15 km/h), the function is no longer operational.

Activation/Deactivation

Peugeot 2008. Automatic headlamp dipping It is set via the Driving  / Vehicle touch screen menu.

The state of the system stays in the memory when switching off the ignition.

Operation

If the ambient light level is sufficient and/or the traffic conditions do not allow the main beam headlamps to be lit:

  • Peugeot 2008. Automatic headlamp dipping The dipped beam headlamps remain lit. These indicator lamps come on on the instrument panel.

    If the ambient light level is very low and traffic conditions permit:

  • Peugeot 2008. Automatic headlamp dipping The main beam headlamps come on automatically. These indicator lamps come on on the instrument panel.

The function is deactivated if the foglamps are switched on.

When the foglamps are switched off, the function is automatically reactivated.

Peugeot 2008. Automatic headlamp dipping This indicator lamp goes out when the function is deactivated.

Pause

If the situation requires a change of headlamp beam, the driver can take over at any time.

A "headlamp flash" pauses the function:

  • if the "AUTO" and "Dipped beam" indicator lamps were on, the system changes to main beam,
  • if the "AUTO" and "Main beam" indicator lamps were on, the system changes to dipped beam.

Peugeot 2008. Automatic headlamp dipping To reactivate the system, flash the headlamps again.

The system may suffer interference or not work correctly:

  • under conditions of poor visibility (snow, heavy rain, etc.),
  • if the windscreen in front of the camera is dirty, misted or obscured (for example, by a sticker, etc.),
  • if the vehicle is facing highly reflective signs.

When the system detects thick fog, it temporarily deactivates the function.

The system is not able to detect:

  • road users that do not have their own lighting, such as pedestrians,
  • vehicles whose lighting is obscured (for example: vehicles running behind a safety barrier on a motorway),
  • vehicles at the top or bottom of a steep slope, on winding roads, on crossroads.

Peugeot 2008. Automatic headlamp dipping Clean the windscreen regularly, particularly the area in front of the camera.

The internal surface of the windscreen can also become misted around the camera. In humid and cold weather, demist the windscreen regularly.

Do not allow snow to accumulate on the bonnet or roof of the vehicle as this could obstruct the detection camera.
