Ford Escape: Exterior Lighting / Automatic High Beam Control

How Does Automatic High Beam Control Work

Automatic high beam control turns the high beams on if it is dark enough and no other traffic is present. If it detects an approaching vehicle’s headlamps or tail lamps, or street lighting ahead, the system turns the high beams off.

A camera sensor, centrally mounted behind the windshield of your vehicle, continuously monitors conditions to turn the high beams on and off.
