Land Rover Discovery: Headlamp courtesy delay

This feature operates whenever the lighting control is in the auto position and the ignition is switched off. The headlamps will remain illuminated for up to 240 seconds.

Note: The time delay may be changed via the Vehicle Set-Up menu.

The Courtesy delay can be switched off at any time, by pressing the headlamp button on the Smart key.


This feature automatically selects and deselects the high beam, under specific conditions of road lighting and in the absence of other vehicle's lights. The system is only active when the ambient light drops below a predetermined level.

Note: It is not recommended that Auto high beam is used while driving off road.

For Auto high beam to become operational, the lighting control must be in the AUTO (5) position, with dipped beam headlamps selected.

The Instrument panel warning lamp illuminates when Auto high beam is selected.

Auto high beam will only activate when the vehicle's speed exceeds 40 km/h (25 mph). The system will deactivate when the vehicle's speed drops below 24 km/h (15 mph).

To manually select high beam, move the lighting control to the high beam position as normal. To return to Auto high beam, move the lighting control back to the central position.

To manually override to dipped beam from high beam, pull the lighting control to the flash position (2) and Auto high beam will be cancelled. To return to Auto high beam, push the lighting control to the high beam position (1) and then return it to the central position.

To switch Auto high beam off, turn the lighting control from AUTO to headlamps.

This feature can be disabled/enabled via the Vehicle Set-Up menu.

The following may affect the operation of Auto high beam:

  • Highly reflective road signs.
  • Dimly lit road users, for example, cyclists or pedestrians.
  • Adverse weather conditions, for example, rain or fog.
  • Dirty or obscured sensor.
  • Dirty, damaged or misted windscreen.
  •  Oncoming vehicles partially obscured by a central motorway barrier.
  • An icy or frosted windscreen.

Note: Make sure to defrost the windscreen during winter conditions.

Note: The system cannot be relied upon to activate or deactivate high beam in all possible circumstances. It remains the driver's responsibility to use the headlamps correctly at all times.

Note: Make sure that the forward-facing sensors on the back of the rear-view mirror are not blocked or obstructed.
