2020 INFINITI QX80 - Headlights and Exterior Lights

"This video is copyrighted material of Nissan North America, Inc. and should not be copied, edited, or reproduced without the permission of Nissan.

The headlight switch is located on the lever to the left of the steering column.

The daytime running lights illuminate with the engine ON and the parking brake released. If the parking brake is applied before the engine is started, the daytime running lights do not illuminate.

To turn ON your front parking lights, side marker lights, tail lights, license plate light and instrument panel lights, turn the headlight switch to THIS position. To turn ON the front headlights, turn the switch to THIS position. All the other lights will stay ON.

To turn ON your high beam headlights, push this lever forward. You’ll see a blue indicator light illuminate. Pull it back toward you to return to low beam. The blue indicator light will turn off. To make your high beam headlights flash ON and OFF, pull the lever toward you and release it.

Fog lights create a wide beam pattern, focused lower than the headlights. This minimizes reflected light and helps you see better in foggy conditions. To use the fog lights, your headlights must be ON and low beam selected. Rotate the collar to THIS position and your fog lights will come ON.

Rotate the collar to the OFF position to deactivate the fog lights.

You can preset the headlights to automatically operate based on exterior lighting conditions. To activate this system, move the headlight switch to the AUTO position, and then push the ignition switch to the ON position.

To turn the system OFF, turn the headlight switch to any other setting. The Autolight system will also keep the headlights ON for a period of time after you push the ignition switch to the OFF position.

There is a light sensor that controls the Autolight system on the top of the instrument panel. Keep that area clear of papers and other material.

The Adaptive Front lighting System (AFS) will automatically adjust the low beam headlights toward the turning direction to improve the driver’s view. AFS will also adjust the headlight to a proper axis automatically, depending on the number of occupants in the vehicle, the load the vehicle is carrying and the road conditions.

When the headlight switch is ON and the driver operates the steering wheel in a turn, the AFS system will be activated.

The AFS will operate:
● when the headlight switch is ON, and
● when the shift lever is in any position other than Park or Reverse.

When the engine is started, the headlights will vibrate to check the system condition. This is not a malfunction. If the AFS OFF indicator light blinks after the ignition switch has been placed in the ON position, this may indicate that the AFS is not functioning properly. Have the system checked. It is recommended you visit an INFINITI retailer for service.

Your vehicle also includes the High Beam Assist system. This system automatically switches the headlights to low-beam when an oncoming vehicle or leading vehicle appears in front of yours.

To activate the high beam assist system, turn the headlight switch to the AUTO position and manually select the high-beam. The high beam assist indicator light in the meter illuminates, and stays on while the headlights are turned on. The high beam assist system operates when the vehicle reaches speeds of approximately 22 miles per hour or more. When the vehicle slows to approximately 17 miles per hour or less, the headlights switch to low-beam, unless you turn the high beam assist off.

To turn the system off, switch from the AUTO position to the headlight ON position or manually select low-beam.

The ambient light sensor used by the high beam assist function is located in front of the inside rearview mirror. To ensure proper function of the system, keep the windshield clean and do not attach stickers or other such materials near the ambient light sensor.
