hi all,
I can't seem to get my Matrix headlights to work. More specifically, the Adaptive driving beam part of them.
I have the headlights set to auto on the stalk and I have enabled ADB in the Vehicle settings -> Exterior lights menu in the instrument display but when I'm on a country road in the dark the headlights just stay on the dipped beam. :?

if I push the headlight stalk forward for more than 1 sec then I just get high beam, it doesn't dip or turn off any of the LEDs and I have to manually dip the high beam. I'm really confused. in my previous car ( Panamera) the matrix LEDs just worked. you put the headlights in auto and then when you pushed the stalk forward the high beam came on and the matrix LEDs dimmed as expected around other cars and I also got indication on the display that the headlights were in "auto" mode.

But on the I-Pace there's no indication on the instrument display that they're set to auto nor that ADB is enabled and working.

Am I doing something wrong or is there a fault?

the auto high beam assist (AHBA) works ok if set in the exterior lights menu and I get the high beam light with the auto under it in the instrument display. but I can't get the ADB to work!

Can someone with ADB let me know what steps they take to get them working please? I'm going to speak to the dealer tomorrow but I wanted to make sure I'm not being an idiot before I do.

thanks in advance.

Mine weren't working but they were disabled in the menu. Try disabling yours then reneabling them. This was only standard on the hse though unless you specced it.

It shows as Auto on the dashboard. Although they need to be active (i.e. dark enough outside) for them to show as Auto. As per Volkswarren's comment, are you sure they're specced on your car?

Hi guys. thanks for the responses. I have an HSE I-Pace so the matrix lights are standard on that. I have the option selected in the menu. I have even, while driving at night, selected AHBA and the auto headlight symbol is shown on the dash and the high beam comes on automatically and also then goes to dipped beam when another vehicle is seen. so they work fine. and then if I reselect ADB in the menu the headlights just go to dipped beam and the auto symbol disappears.
this is why I think there's a fault somewhere as when ADB is selected it just goes to dipped beam.

I'll have a look at mine the next time I'm driving in the evening and check my settings. I honestly just leave it as it is. It doesn't dip when another vehicle is coming. It simply shuts off the bulbs to create a 'hole' of darkness around the other vehicle and the rest stays fully illuminated in high-beam. I find it's one of the best features of the car.

the 'hole' of darkness around the other vehicles is exactly how I would expect it to work. that's how it was on the Porsche and I loved it!

Matrix headlights are now one of the must have features for me on a new car, it helps with night driving immensely.

I love mine. At first I used to cringe when sitting behind a car and the adaptive full beam came on illuminating the signposts either side of the car. But then after it happened when I was following my wife and she said she was completely unaware of any change in my lights.

I love this feature too, though it was all disabled on my HSE

do you need to do anything to get them working? is there any visual indication on the display that they're working? i.e an auto-headlight symbol or the like?

my car is booked in at the beginning of August to have this and a few other issues looked at as I'm now assuming it's a fault.

When the lights come on you'll get a green headlamp symbol on the dash cluster (lower right). Next to it will be a green "A". But there is no indication when the lights are off.

You'll also get a blue full beam symbol when it switches on the full beam element, but there is nothing to differentiate that symbol from the one you get if you switch on the manual full beam.

cheers. I don't get that lower right green headlamp symbol with a green "A". all I have is in the lower left the dipped headlight and side light symbols.

must be faulty then. I hope they can fix it when it goes in.

definitely! the dimmed beam and sidelights come on automatically as it gets dark. also, if I twist the stalk to dipped beam at night I get a message on the display saying ADB won't work until I switch to auto on the stalk, which I then do so but ADB still doesn't start up.

It's just the one setting on mine.
Yep. That's what I have as well. Must just be faulty then!

Thanks for the assistance all.

You do know it doesn't work in town driving? If the system see other lights (Street or cars) similar to how the high beam worked on my last LR, go for a run on a country road, see if it's working there.

yep. definitely aware of that. I was testing it on a dark country road to make sure it wasn't some other factor that was causing it to not work.
