The lever operates the turn signals, the high beams and the headlight flasher.

Turn signals

The turn signal will activate when you move the lever into a turn signal position while the ignition is switched on. The respective or indicator light will flash. The turn signal blinks three times if you tap the lever (convenience turn signal).

  1. Right turn signal
  2. Left turn signal

If an indicator light blinks twice as fast as usual, a turn signal bulb has failed. Carefully drive to an authorized Audi dealer or authorized Audi Service Facility immediately to have the malfunction corrected.

High beams and headlight flasher

Move the lever to the corresponding position:

  1. High beams on (vehicles with High beam assistant*
  2. High beams off or headlight flasher

The indicator light in the instrument cluster will turn on.

WARNING

High beams can cause glare for other drivers, which increases the risk of an accident. For this reason, only use the high beams or the headlight flasher when they will not create glare for other drivers.

High beam assistant

The high beam assistant automatically turns the high beams on or off depending on the surrounding conditions.

A camera on the rearview mirror mount can detect light sources from other road users. The high beams switch on or off automatically depending on the position of vehicles driving ahead and oncoming vehicles, the vehicle speed as well as other environmental factors and traffic conditions.

Activating high beam assistant

Requirement: the light switch must be in the AUTO position and the high beam assistant must be switched on in the MMI.

  • To activate the high beam assistant, tap the lever forward (3), fig. 35. The indicator light will appear in the instrument cluster display and the high beams will be switched on or off automatically. The indicator light will turn on if the high beams are switched on.

Activating and deactivating the high beam head lights manually

If the high beams did not switch on or off as expected, you may switch them on or off manually instead:

  • To activate the high beams manually, tap the lever forward (3), fig. 35. The indicator light will turn on.
  • To deactivate the high beams manually, pull the lever back (4), fig. 35. The high beam assistant is deactivated.

Operating the headlight flasher

  • To operate the headlight flashers, pull the lever back (4), fig. 35. If the high beam headlights are not switched on, the high beam assistant will remain activated.

WARNING

  • Observe the safety precautions and note the limits of the assist systems, sensors, and cameras.
  • High beam assistant is only intended to assist the driver. The driver is responsible for controlling the high beam headlights and adjusting them to match the lighting and visibility conditions.
  • High beams can cause glare for other drivers, which increases the risk of an accident.

    For this reason, only use the high beams or the headlight flasher when they will not create glare for other drivers.

Tips

Adhere to any local applicable regulations when using the lighting equipment, for example in regard to reducing glare for other drivers.

The driver is always responsible for adhering to the regulations applicable in the country where the vehicle is being operated.
