Depending on the number of occupants in

Depending on the number of occupants in the vehicle and the load it is carrying, the headlight axis may be higher than desired. If the vehicle is traveling on a hilly road, the headlights may directly hit the rearview mirror of the vehicle ahead or the windshield of the oncoming vehicle. The light axis can be lowered with the operation of the switch. The larger the number designated on the switch, the lower the axis. When traveling with no heavy load or on a flat road, select position 0.

Xenon headlights are extremely bright compared to conventional headlights. If the xenon headlights hit the rearview mirror of the vehicle ahead or the windshield of oncoming vehicle, the driver of these vehicles may have difficulty driving because of the brightness. Use the headlight aiming control switch to lower the light axis. See “Xenon headlights” earlier in this section for additional information.

The Adaptive Front lighting System (AFS) will automatically adjust the headlights (low beam) toward the turning direction to improve the driver’s view. When the headlight switch is ON and the driver operates the steering wheel in a turn, the AFS system will be activated. The AFS will operate:
► Right-side headlight
— When the headlight switch is ON
— When the selector lever is in any position other than P (Park) or R (Reverse)
— When the steering wheel is turned clockwise

► Left-side headlight
— When the headlight switch is ON
— When the selector lever is in any position other than P (Park) or R (Reverse)
— When the vehicle is driven at a speed above 16 MPH (25km/h). However, when the vehicle’s speed decreases below 3 MPH (5 km/h) it will stop. — When the steering wheel is turned counterclockwise

AFS will also adjust the headlight to a proper axis automatically, depending on the number of occupants in the vehicle, the load the vehicle is carrying and the road conditions. If the AFS OFF indicator light blinks after the ignition switch has been pushed to the ON position, this may indicate that the AFS is not functioning properly. Have the system checked by an INFINITI retailer. When the engine is started, the headlights will vibrate to check the system condition. This is not a malfunction.
