Adaptive Forward Lighting (AFL)

Cadillac SRX / Cadillac SRX Owners Manual / Lighting / Exterior Lighting / Adaptive Forward Lighting (AFL)

For vehicles with uplevel headlamps, the Adaptive Forward Lighting System (AFL) adjusts the headlamps to provide greater road illumination in various driving conditions.

To enable AFL, set the exterior lamp control to the AUTO position.

Moving the control out of the AUTO position will deactivate the system.

AFL will operate when the vehicle speed is greater than 3 km/h (2 mph). AFL will not operate when the transmission is in R (Reverse).

AFL is not immediately operable after starting the vehicle; driving a short distance is required to calibrate the AFL. See Exterior Lamp Controls.

Curve Lighting

The light beam pivots based on the steering wheel position and vehicle speed of at least 10 km/h (6 mph).

The headlamps shine at an angle of up to 15 degrees to the right or left of the direction of travel.

Highway Lighting

If the vehicle is traveling straight continuously at high speeds, the light beam automatically raises slightly to increase the headlamp range.

City Lighting

If the vehicle speed is less than 50 km/h (31 mph), the headlamp range is automatically reduced.
