I have watched a zillion videos ...wore out my users guide , just received the free owners manual . Taken it to two dealerships ...first where I purchased the vehicle brand new for $40k would NOT do a hard reboot or pull fuses. The second dealership did as I asked and now my auto idle stop now works but not the auto high beams! Will the auto high beam symbol be illuminated on your dash at night time noting the system is activated and ready to go OR does the symbol only pop up when the the high beams are actually turning on and off?

Are you referring to the 700 plus page owner's manual? If so, how did you get it? I asked my salesman about a full version and he said all I could get is the on online.

The Auto High beams require some in depth actions on your part in order to turn them on or off. From what I have read, you have to follow a few steps including pulling the stalk for about 40 seconds if I recall. you also have to have the switch in the Auto position and the low beams on?

It is explained around page 38 of the small owner's manual. You also have to be driving over 45 MPH for them to work.

Turning the System On or Off Make sure the headlight lever is in the low beam position with the switch rotated to the AUTO position. The auto high beam system indicator comes on. To disable the system: Pull and hold the headlight lever toward you for about 40 seconds, until the indicator flashes twice. To enable the system: Pull and hold the headlight lever toward you for about 30 seconds, until the indicator flashes once. To temporarily cancel operation, do either of the following: • Flash the high beams by moving the lever toward you. Flash the high beams again to resume auto high beam operation. • Engage high beams by moving the lever into the high beam position. Return the lever to the low beam position to resume auto high beam operation. If you find the timing of beam changes inconvenient for driving, change the beams manually.

Yes, the auto high beam symbol will be illuminated on your dash at night time noting the system is activated and ready.
As noted earlier, you must reach the 45 MPH threshold to activate the auto high beam.
Once you’ve met the MPH threshold, the auto high beam feature will continue to work even at lower speeds.

Thank you, Weezer for the link to order the manuals. I had registered on the Honda Owner's site last week. I must have overlooked it somehow. Just went ahead and ordered them.

It is also important to note, in addition to all that has been said, that it will not automatically come on if it senses light from your immediate environment, like light from oncoming vehicles. It is designed to only come on when there are no vehicles in front of you so you don’t blind them with the full lights on. It either stays off until it’s all dark around you with no other noticeable light around you or cut off when it senses light after it has come on. It has been correctly mentioned that it also doesn’t come on at speeds below 45 mph.
