Mazda CX-5 Owners Manual: Lighting Control

Headlights

Turn the headlight switch to turn the headlights, other exterior lights and dashboard illumination on or off.

A system malfunction or operation conditions are indicated by a warning.

Refer to Warning/Indicator Lights 5.

NOTE

If the light switch is left on, the lights will automatically switch off (if equipped) approximately 30 seconds after switching the ignition off.

The time setting can be changed.

Refer to Personalization Features .

To prevent discharging the battery, do not leave the lights on while the engine is off unless safety requires them.

Without auto-light control



With auto-light control



Auto-light control

When the headlight switch is in the position and the ignition is switched
ON, the light sensor senses the surrounding lightness or darkness and automatically turns the headlights, other exterior lights and dashboard illumination on or off (see chart above).

CAUTION

Do not shade the light sensor by adhering a sticker or a label on the windshield.

Otherwise the light sensor will not operate correctly.


The light sensor also works as a rain sensor for the auto-wiper control. Keep hands and scrapers clear of the windshield when the wiper lever is in the position and the ignition is switched ON as fingers could be pinched or the wipers and wiper blades damaged when the wipers activate automatically. If you are going to clean the windshield, be sure the wipers are turned off completely ― this is particularly important when clearing ice and snow ― when it is particularly tempting to leave the engine running.

NOTE

The headlights, other exterior lights and dashboard illumination may not turn off immediately even if the surrounding area becomes well-lit because the light sensor determines that it is nighttime if the surrounding area is continuously dark for several minutes such as inside long tunnels, traffic jams inside tunnels, or in indoor parking lots.

In this case, the light turns off if the light switch is turned to the position.


Without auto headlight off function)<> When the headlight switch is in the position
and the ignition is switched to ACC or the ignition is switched off, the headlights, other exterior lights and dashboard illumination will turn off.

The dashboard illumination can be adjusted by rotating the knob in the instrument cluster. Also, the day/night mode can be changed by rotating the knob until a beep sound is heard. To adjust the brightness of the dashboard illumination: Refer to Dashboard Illumination 1.

The sensitivity of the AUTO lights may be changed by an Authorized Mazda Dealer.

Refer to Personalization Features .

Xenon fusion headlight bulbs

The low-beam bulbs of the headlights have xenon fusion bulbs that produce a bright white beam over a wide area.

WARNING

Do not replace the xenon fusion bulbs yourself

Replacing the xenon fusion bulbs yourself is dangerous. Because the xenon fusion bulbs require high voltage, you could receive an electric shock if the bulbs are handled incorrectly. Consult an Authorized Mazda Dealer when the replacement is necessary.

NOTE

If the headlights flicker, or the brightness weakens, the bulb-life may be depleted and a replacement is necessary. Consult an Authorized Mazda Dealer.

Headlight High-Low Beam

Press the lever forward to turn on the high beams.

Pull the lever back to its original position for the low beams.

The headlight high-beam indicator light in the instrument cluster illuminates while the high beams are turned on.


Flashing the Headlights

To flash the headlights, pull the lever fully towards you (the headlight switch does not need to be on). The headlight highbeam indicator light in the instrument cluster illuminates simultaneously. The lever will return to the normal position when released.


Headlight Leveling

The number of passengers and weight of cargo in the luggage compartment change the angle of the headlights.

The angle of the headlights will be automatically adjusted when turning on the headlights.

A system malfunction or operation conditions are indicated by a warning.

Refer to Warning/Indicator Lights on .

Adaptive Front Lighting System (AFS)

The adaptive front lighting system (AFS) automatically adjusts the headlight beams to the left or right in conjunction with the operation of the steering wheel after the headlights have been turned on and the vehicle speed is about 2 km/h (2 mph) or higher.

A system malfunction or operation conditions are indicated by a warning.

Refer to Warning/Indicator Lights on .

AFS OFF switch

Pressing the AFS OFF switch turns off the AFS. The AFS OFF indicator light in the instrument cluster illuminates.

Pressing the AFS OFF switch again turns off the switch illumination and turns on the AFS operation. The AFS OFF indicator light turns off.


Daytime Running Lights

Some countries require moving vehicles to have their lights on (daytime running lights) during the daytime.

Daytime running lights turn on automatically when the ignition is switched ON.

They turn off when the parking brake is operated or the shift lever is shifted to the P position (automatic transaxle vehicle).

NOTE

(Except Canada)
The daytime running lights can be deactivated.

Refer to Personalization Features .
