Head light switch setting?



Can someone tell me what setting is this on the light switch? It's the one left from the off setting. And Can it be used for angel eyes?

A is for automatic. This setting will turn the lights off if there is enough ambient light and will turn the lights on if it's getting dark.

LCM = Light Control Module. You might be familiar with the other term commonly used to refer to it: LKM. LKM = LCM.

When the switch is set to "A" and it is day time, your main beam should be OFF. If it is night time, your main beam will turn ON.

Aha ok. Then i dont think i have that funktion. In Sweden it is law to have low Beam on all the time and My car is not an import. Its ā shame. I realy liked that funktion.
