DS 3: Automatic headlamp dipping / Pause

DS 3 2016-2023 Owners Manual

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

  • Switch the headlamps manually between dipped and main beam to pause 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.

  • To reactivate the function, once again switch the headlamps manually between dipped and main beam.

DS 3. Pause The system may be disrupted or not work correctly:

  • When visibility conditions are poor (snowfall, heavy rain, etc.).
  • If the windscreen in front of the camera is dirty, misted or obscured (for example, by a sticker).
  • 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 driving behind a safety barrier on a motorway).
  • Vehicles at the top or bottom of a steep slope, on winding roads, on crossroads.

DS 3. Pause 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.
