Honda HR-V Hybrid 2022 Fog Lights User Manual
When the low beam headlights are on, turn the fog light switch on to use the fog lights. When the fog lights are on, the indicator in the instrument panel will be on.
They go off when the headlights turn off, or when the daytime running lights are on.
Daytime Running Lights
The parking/daytime running lights come on when the following conditions have been met:
- The ignition switch is in ON (w*1.
- The headlight switch is OFF.
- The headlight switch is AUTO.
- The parking brake is released.
The lights remain on even if you set the parking brake. Turning off the ignition switch or setting the power mode to VEHICLE OFF will turn off the daytime running lights. The daytime running lights are off once the headlight switch is turned on, or when the headlight switch is in AUTO* and it is getting darker outside.
The daytime running lights come on dimmer when the headlight switch is in than when it is in AUTO*. In AUTO*, if the ambient brightness is dark, the low-beam headlights come on.
The front sensor camera detects the light sources ahead of the vehicle such as the lights of a preceding or oncoming vehicle, or street lights. When you are driving at night, the system automatically switches the headlights between low beam and high beam depending on the situation.

Not available on all models
The auto high-beam system does not always operate in every situation. This system is just for assisting the driver. Always observe your surroundings and switch the headlights between the high beam and the low beam manually if necessary. If you find the timing of beam changes inconvenient for driving, change the headlight beams manually. The range and the distance at which the camera can recognize varies depending on the conditions surrounding your vehicle. Regarding the handling of the camera mounted to the inside of the windshield, refer to the following.
For the auto high-beam to work properly:
- Do not place an object that reflects light on the dashboard.
- Keep the windshield around the camera clean. When cleaning the windshield, be careful not to apply the windshield cleanser to the camera lens.
- Do not attach an object, sticker or film to the area around the camera.
- Do not touch the camera lens.
If the camera receives a strong impact, or repairing of the area near the camera is required, consult a dealer.
