DS 3: Lighting and visibility / Automatic illumination of headlamps

DS 3 2016-2023 Owners Manual

With the lighting control stalk in the “AUTO” position and if a low level of exterior brightness is detected by the rain/sunshine sensor, the sidelamps and dipped beam headlamps are switched on automatically, without any action on the part of the driver. They may also come on if rain is detected, at the same time as automatic operation of the windscreen wipers.

As soon as the brightness returns to a sufficient level or after the windscreen wipers are switched off, the lamps are switched off automatically.


DS 3. Automatic illumination of headlamps In the event of a malfunction of the rain/ sunshine sensor, the vehicle’s lamps come on and this warning lamp is displayed on the instrument panel, accompanied by an audible signal and/or the display of a message.

Have it checked by a dealer or a qualified workshop.
