Auto-light control (Some models)

When the headlight switch is in the Mazda CX-3. Headlights position and the ignition is switched ON, the light sensor senses the surrounding lightness or darkness and automatically turns the headlights, other exterior lights and dashboard illumination on or off (see chart above).

CAUTION

  • Do not shade the light sensor by adhering a sticker or a label on the windshield. Otherwise the light sensor will not operate correctly.

  • The light sensor also works as a rain sensor for the auto-wiper control. Keep hands and scrapers clear of the windshield when the wiper lever is in the Mazda CX-3. Headlights position and the ignition is switched ON as fingers could be pinche d or the wipers and wiper blades could be damaged when the wipers activate automatically. If you are going to clean the windshield, be sure the wipers are turned off completely wh en it is particularly tempting to leave the engine running. This is particularly important when clearing ice and snow.

NOTE

  • The headlights, other exterior lights and dashboard illumination may not turn off immediately even if the surrounding area becomes well-lit because the light sensor determines that it is night time if the surrounding area is continuously dark for several minutes such as inside long tunnels, traffic jams inside tunnels, or in indoor parking lots. In this case, the lights turn off if the light switch is turned to the position.
  • (Without auto headlight off function)

    When the headlight switch is in the position and the ignition is switched to ACC or the ignition is switched off, the headlights, other exterior lights and dashboard illumination will turn off.

  • The dashboard illumination can be adjusted by rotating the knob in the instrument cluster. Also, the day/night mode can be changed by rotating the knob until a beep sound is heard. To adjust the brightness of the dashboard illumination: Refer to Dashboard Illumination.
  • The sensitivity of the AUTO lights may be changed by an Authorized Mazda Dealer. Refer to Personalization Features.
