High beam assist
High Beam Assist will automatically switch between high beam and low beam depending on the detected brightness from the lamps of oncoming vehicles or vehicles in front.
 : 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.
• Always keep the front view camera in good condition to maintain optimal performance of High Beam Assist.
• 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 headlamp switch in the AUTO position and push the headlamp lever towards the instrument cluster. The High Beam Assist indicator light will illuminate on the cluster and the function will be enabled.
- When the function is enabled, high beam will turn on when vehicle speed is above 25mph (40km/h). When vehicle speed is 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 headlamp lever or switch is used, the function operates as follow:
- If the headlamp 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 headlamp lever, the lever will move to the middle and the high beam will turn off.
- If the headlamp lever is pulled towards you when the high beam is on by High Beam Assist, low beam will turn on and the function will turn off.
- If the headlamp switch is placed from AUTO to another position (headlamp/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 headlamp of an oncoming vehicle is detected.
- When the tail lamp of a vehicle in front is detected.
- When the headlamp 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.
• The images and colors in the cluster may differ depending on the cluster type or theme selected from the cluster.
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.
• Head lamp of an oncoming or front vehicle is covered with dust, snow or water.
• An oncoming or front vehicle’s headlamps are off but the fog lamps are on, etc.
• There is a lamp that has a similar shape as a vehicle’s lamp.
• Headlamps have been damaged or not repaired properly.
• Headlamps are not aimed properly.
• Driving on a narrow curved road, 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. 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 normally, change the headlamp position manually between high beam and low beam.
