    • No occupants inside vehicle

    • Cargo other than spare tire, jack, and tools not loaded

    • Tire pressure is at specification.

NOTE:

  • The headlight auto leveling system initial setting has a procedure which uses the M-MDS and one which does not. Because the procedure differs depending on the part which is replaced in the method not using the M-MDS, refer to the following and perform the initial setting.

    • If the following servicing is to be done, perform the procedure for the case where system initialization has never been done..

      • AFS (adaptive front lighting system) control module is newly replaced.

    • If the following servicing is done, perform the procedure for the case where the system is reset after initialization has already been completed..

      • Auto leveling sensor is removed/installed.

2. Ground the DLC-2 B terminal 3 times or more at 1 s intervals using the jumper wire.


3. If the headlight auto leveling system initial setting is completed normally, the AFS OFF indicator light flashes three times at 0.5 s intervals and it turns off.


NOTE:

  • If the AFS OFF indicator light continues to flash at 0.5 s intervals, the following malfunction can be considered. Repair or replace the malfunctioning area, then repeat the procedure from Step 1..

  • With the normal completion of the headlight auto leveling system initial setting, the headlight leveling actuator operation can also be verified. If the headlight auto leveling system initial setting is completed normally, the headlight leveling actuator lowers from its current position for approx. 2 s and returns to its original position.

4. Disconnect the jumper wire from DLC-2.

5. Verify that the AFS OFF indicator light is not illuminated.
