The multifunction lever controls the operation of the turn signals, headlight beam selection and passing lights. The multifunction lever is located on the left side of the steering column.

HEADLIGHT SWITCH
The headlight switch is located on the left side of the instrument panel. This switch controls the operation of the headlights, parking lights, automatic headlights
(if equipped), instrument panel lights, and interior lights.

NOTE:
For PHEV Models: The fuel door release button is located to the left of the headlight control.2024 Dodge Hornet EXTERIOR LIGHTS 2

  1. Rotate Headlight Control
  2. Instrument Panel Dimmer Control

To turn on the headlights, rotate the headlight switch clockwise. When the headlight switch is on, the parking lights, taillights, license plate lights and instrument panel lights are also turned on.
The headlight switch is equipped with a momentary O (off) detent. When the vehicle is at a standstill and the headlight switch is held in the O (off) position, the daytime running Lights (DRLs) will turn on. As soon as the vehicle starts to move, the O (off) position is disabled the DRLs may turn off and low-beam headlights may automatically turn on based on exterior ambient light levels.
From the O (off) position, rotate the headlight switch clockwise to the first detent for automatic headlights, the second detent for parking lights and instrument panel lights operation, or the third detent for head-lights, parking lights, and instrument panel lights operation.

DAYTIME RUNNING LIGHTS (DRLS)— IF EQUIPPED
The Daytime Running Lights (DRLs) (low intensity) come on automatically whenever the ignition is placed in the ON/RUN position, the headlight switch is turned to the AUTO position, and the dusk sensor detects sufficient external light.

NOTE:
On some vehicles, the Daytime Running Lights may deactivate, or reduce intensity, on one side of the vehicle (when a turn signal is activated on that side), or on both sides of the vehicle (when the hazard warning lights are activated).

HIGH/LOW BEAM SWITCH
Push the multifunction lever towards the instrument panel to switch the headlights to high beams. The headlight switch must first be turned to the AUTO or on position.
The high beam indicator will illuminate in the instrument cluster when the high beams are active.
Push the lever forward again to return to low-beam headlights.

AUTOMATIC HIGH BEAM HEADLIGHTS — IF EQUIPPED
The Automatic High Beam Headlight system provides increased forward lighting at night by automating high beam control through the use of a digital camera mounted on the windshield. This camera detects vehicle-specific light and automatically switches from high beams to low beams until the approaching vehicle is out of view.

To activate the Automatic High Beam Headlights, proceed as follows:

  1. Within the Uconnect system, set “Auto Dim High Beams” to “ON”.
  2. Place the headlight switch in the AUTO position.
  3. Push the multifunction lever forward to activate the high beams.

NOTE:
Broken, muddy, or obstructed headlights and taillights of vehicles in the field of view will cause headlights to remain on longer (closer to the vehicle). Also, dirt, film, and other obstructions on the windshield or camera lens will cause the system to function improperly.

FLASH-TO-PASS
You can signal another vehicle with your headlights by lightly pulling the multifunction lever toward you. This will cause the high-beam headlights to turn on, and remain on until the lever is released.

AUTOMATIC HEADLIGHTS — IF EQUIPPED
2024 Dodge Hornet EXTERIOR LIGHTS 3This system automatically turns the headlights on or off according to ambient light levels. To turn the system on, rotate the headlight switch clockwise to the AUTO position.
When the system is on, the headlight time delay feature is also on. This means the headlights will stay on for up to 90 seconds after you place the ignition into the OFF position. To turn the automatic system off, move the headlight switch out of the AUTO position.

NOTE:
The engine must be running before the headlights will come on in the automatic mode.

HEADLIGHTS ON AUTOMATICALLY WITH WIPERS — IF EQUIPPED
If your vehicle is equipped with Automatic Headlights, it also has this customer-programmable feature. When your headlights are in automatic mode and the engine is running, they will automatically turn on when the wiper system is on. This feature is programmable through the Uconnect system.

NOTE:
When your headlights come on during the daytime, the vehicle will monitor outside brightness and decide if the instrument panel needs to be dimmed.

HEADLIGHT DELAY
To aid in your exit, your vehicle is equipped with a head-light delay that will leave the headlights on for approxi-mately 90 seconds. This delay is initiated when the ignition is placed in the OFF position while the headlight switch is on, and then the headlight switch is cycled off. Headlight delay can be cancelled by either turning the headlight switch on and then off or by placing the ignition in the ON/RUN position.

NOTE:
The headlight delay time is programmable through Uconnect Settings page 145.

LIGHTS-ON REMINDER
If the headlights or parking lights are on after the ignition is in the OFF position, a chime will sound to alert the driver when the driver’s door is opened.

CORNERING LIGHTS —IF EQUIPPED
The cornering lights are a feature to improve visibility at night while turning the vehicle. When activated, a light incorporated in the headlight assembly will illuminate on the side of the vehicle where the steering wheel is rotated, or that the turn signal indicator is on. It can be acti-vated through the Uconnect system page 145.

TURN SIGNALS
Move the multifunction lever up or down to activate the turn signals. The arrows on each side of the instrument cluster display flash to show proper operation.
Once the turn signal lever is activated, it will return to its original position. To cancel the turn signal action, the lever must be moved again or the turn in that direction must be completed.

NOTE:
If either light remains on and does not flash, or there is a very fast flash rate, check for a defective outside light bulb.

LANE CHANGE ASSIST
Lightly push the multifunction lever up or down, without moving beyond the detent, and the turn signal will flash three times then automatically turn off.
To turn off the flashing before the end of the cycle, move the lever in the opposite direction until the first click (about halfway).

BATTERY SAVER FEATURE
To protect the battery, if the headlight switch is left in the low beam or parking light position when the ignition is placed in the OFF position, the lights are deactivated after eight minutes. The lights can also be turned off manually by rotating the headlight switch to the O
(off) position.

INTERIOR LIGHTS

INTERIOR COURTESY LIGHTS
Courtesy and dome lights are turned on when the front doors are opened.
To protect the battery, the interior lights will turn off automatically 15 minutes after the ignition is placed in the OFF position, and no other activity in the vehicle has occurred. This will occur if the interior lights are turned on manually or are on because a door is open. This includes the glove compartment light and the cargo area light. To restore interior light operation, either place the ignition in the ON/RUN position or push the light switch on and then back off.

Front Map Reading Lights

  4. Overhead Lights On/Off When Doors Open

NOTE:
Before exiting the vehicle, ensure that the overhead lights are off. This will prevent the battery from discharging once the doors are closed. If a light is left on accidentally, the overhead lights will turn off automati-cally approximately 15 minutes after the ignition has been placed in the OFF position.

Overhead Light Timing
On certain models, to assist in getting in and out of the vehicle at night or in poorly lit areas, two timed modes have been provided.

Timing While Getting Into The Vehicle
The overhead lights turn on according to the following modes:

  • Will illuminate for approximately three minutes when the doors are unlocked.
  • Will illuminate for approximately three minutes when one of the doors is opened.
  • Will illuminate for approximately 27 seconds when each door is closed and switch off simultaneously when the doors are locked.

Timing is interrupted when the ignition is placed in the ON/RUN position.

Three Modes Are Available For Turning Off Overhead Lighting:

  • When all doors are closed after entering the vehicle, the three-minute timer will stop and a second timer will start for the interior lights. This timing will stop when the ignition is placed in the ON/RUN position.
  • When doors are locked (either with the key fob or with the emergency key inserted in driver’s side door), the overhead light turns off.
  • The interior lights will turn off after 15 minutes to preserve the battery.

Timing While Getting Out Of The Vehicle
After placing the ignition in the OFF position, the over-head lights will turn on as follows:

  • For a few seconds after the engine stops.
  • For approximately three minutes when one of the doors is opened.
  • For several seconds when the last door is closed.

The timing stops automatically when the doors are locked.
