Hello to all,



Firstly, sorry if this thread has already been covered (I searched in vain) but I encounter my first "small" issue with the 2017 JKU 3.6l.


It takes about 10 seconds for the auto headlights to switch on after I enter a shadow zone or an underground parking lot.

From all the car I owned before, this is the "slowest" one I ever had.


Are you experiencing this issue in the USA or is this just a European problem?


And if you have this as well, is there a war to modify the parameters of this auto lightning function to make it faster?


In advance, many thanks for your advice.

Auto headlights are standard on the Sahara and maybe the Rubicon in the U.S.

Ten seconds seems a bit long although I have never timed mine, I don't think it takes that long. While I don't recall parking in a darkened parking garage in the daylight, mine do come on when I go through the I-10 tunnels in Mobile, Al and it generally only seems to take a few seconds. While my TJ is normally the one in the garage, the Sahara did get parked in it when the TJ was in the shop last month. I seem to recall the auto headlights came on before the Jeep was more than halfway through the door and that certainly didn't take 10 seconds.

Thanks for your answers.

After consideration, it seems that he sensor needs almost a full darkness environment to operate properly, more that just a time reaction or delay in fact. When in a tunnel, it seems it is not dark enough to turn the lights on. I will try to mask the sensor a little. It might help. I will try it and tell you later. :)
