Volkswagen Touran Owners Manual: Lights and vision – functions

First read and observe the introductory information and safety warnings

Parking lights

When the parking lights (left and right turn signals) are switched on, the headlight and the tail light on the corresponding side of the vehicle light up. The parking light will only light up when the ignition is switched off and if the turn signal and main beam lever was in the central position before being operated.

Permanent parking light on both sides

When the light switch is in position with the ignition switched off and the vehicle has been locked from the outside, both headlights and the rear lights light up.

Daytime headlights

There are separate lights in the headlights or in the front bumper for the daytime headlights.

Only the separate lights light up when the daytime headlights are switched on  .

The daytime running lights are switched on when the ignition is switched on if the light switch is in position or .

If the light switch is in position , a light sensor will switch the lighting in the instruments and switches on and off automatically.

Activating the daytime running lights Deactivating the daytime running lights
Push the turn signal and main beam lever up and back and hold (right turn signal and headlight flash). Push the turn signal and main beam lever down and back and hold (left turn signal and headlight flash).
Switch the ignition on and off again for approximately 3 seconds.

Automatic headlight control

The automatic headlight control is merely an aid and will not always be able to detect all driving situations.

If the light switch is in position , the vehicle lighting and lighting in the instruments and switches will switch on and off automatically in the following situations  :

Automatically switched on: Automatic switch-off or switch to daytime headlights:
When the light sensor detects darkness, e.g. when driving through tunnels. When the sensors detect there is enough light.
When the rain sensor detects that it is raining and switches the windscreen wipers on. When the windscreen wiper has not been used for a few minutes.

Dynamic bend lighting (AFS)

The dynamic bend lighting can be switched on and off using the Volkswagen information system   .

When driving round bends, the road is automatically better lit by the swivelling bulbs. The dynamic bend lighting works only at speeds above approximately 10 km/h (6 mph) and when the dipped beam headlights are switched on.

Static cornering lighting

When cornering slowly or in very tight bends, the static bend lighting integrated in the headlight will also be switched on automatically. The static bend lighting works only at speeds under approximately 40 km/h (25 mph).

The static bend lighting may, depending on the equipment option, be integrated in the fog light or in the front headlight.

WARNING

Accidents could be caused if roads are not sufficiently lit and the vehicle cannot be seen or is very difficult to be seen by other road users.
  • The automatic headlight control ( ) switches the dipped beam headlights on only when there is a change to the level of brightness and not, for example, if it is foggy.
  • Never drive with daytime headlights if the street is not sufficiently lit due to weather and lighting conditions. The daytime headlights are not bright enough to illuminate the road ahead and to ensure that other road users are able to see you.
  • The rear lights will not be switched on with the daytime running lights. If the rear lights are not switched on, the vehicle may not be visible to other road users if it is dark, raining or if visibility is poor.

In cool or damp weather, the headlights, rear lights and turn signals may mist over briefly on the inside. This is normal and does not affect the service life of the lights on your vehicle.
