High beam assist
High Beam Assist will automatically adjust the headlamp range (switches between high beam and low beam) depending on the brightness of detected vehicles and certain road conditions.
Detecting sensor (Front view camera)
 : Front view camera
The front view camera is used as a detecting sensor to detect ambient light and brightness while driving.
Refer to the picture above for the detailed location of the detecting sensor.
For more details on the precautions of the front view camera, refer to “Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA)” section in chapter 7.
High Beam Assist Settings
With the engine on, select 'Lights - High Beam Assist’ from the Settings menu to turn on High Beam Assist and deselect to turn off the function.
For your safety, change the Settings after parking the vehicle at a safe location.
High Beam Assist Operation
Display and control
- After selecting ‘High Beam Assist’ in the Settings menu, High Beam Assist will operate by following the procedure below.
- Place the headlight switch in the AUTO position and push the headlight lever towards the instrument cluster. The High Beam Assist indicator light will illuminate on the cluster and High Beam Assist will be enabled.
- When High Beam Assist is enabled, high beam will turn on when vehicle speed is above 25 mph (40 km/h). When vehicle speed is below 15 mph (25 km/h), high beam will turn off.
- The High Beam indicator light will illuminate on the cluster when high beam is on.
- When High Beam Assist is operating, if the headlight lever or switch is used, High Beam Assist operates as follow:
- If the headlight lever is pulled towards you when the high beam is off, the high beam will turn on without High Beam Assist canceled. When you let go of the headlight lever, the lever will move to the middle and the high beam will turn off.
- If the headlight lever is pulled towards you when the high beam is on by High Beam Assist, low beam will turn on and High Beam Assist will turn off.
- If the headlight switch is placed from AUTO to another position (headlight/position/off), High Beam Assist will turn off and the corresponding lamp will turn on.
- When High Beam Assist is operating, high beam switches to low beam if any of the following conditions occur:
- When the headlight of an oncoming vehicle is detected. - When the tail lamp of a vehicle in front is detected.
- When the headlight or tail lamp of a motorcycle or a bicycle is detected.
- When the surrounding ambient light is bright enough that high beams are not required.
- When streetlights or other lights are detected.
High Beam Assist Malfunction and Limitations
High Beam Assist malfunction
When High Beam Assist is not working properly, the ‘Check High Beam Assist (HBA) system’ warning message will appear and warning light will illuminate on the cluster. Have the vehicle inspected by an authorized HYUNDAI dealer.
Limitations of High Beam Assist
High Beam Assist may not work properly in the following situations:
- Light from an oncoming or front vehicle is not detected because of lamp damage, or because it is hidden from sight, etc.
- Headlight of an oncoming or front vehicle is covered with dust, snow or water.
- A front vehicle’s headlights are off, but the fog lamps are on, etc.
- There is a lamp that has a similar shape as a vehicle’s lamp.
- Headlights have been damaged or not repaired properly.
- Headlights are not aimed properly.
- Driving on a narrow-curved road, rough road, uphill or downhill.
- Vehicle in front is partially visible on a crossroad or curved road.
- There is a traffic light, reflecting sign, flashing sign or mirror ahead.
- There is a temporary reflector or flash ahead (construction area).
- The road conditions are bad such as being wet, iced or covered with snow.
- A vehicle suddenly appears from a curve.
- The vehicle is tilted from a flat tire or is being towed.
- Light from an oncoming or front vehicle is not detected due to obstacles in the air such as exhaust fume, smoke, fog, snow, or water spay or blizzard on the road, or fogging in the lamp, etc.
For more details on the limitations of the front view camera, refer to “Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA)” section in chapter 7.
- At times, High Beam Assist may not work properly. High Beam Assist is for your convenience only. It is the responsibility of the driver for safe driving practices and always check the road conditions for your safety.
- When High Beam Assist does not operate properly, change the headlight position manually between high beam and low beam.
