Lincoln Aviator: Lighting / Adaptive Headlamps

About Adaptive Headlamps

The headlamps are designed to adapt when you are steering around a curve, or if the camera detects lane markings indicating a curve or traffic signs indicating an intersection.

The system is designed to operate if all of the following occur:

  • You switch the system on through your vehicle settings.
  • You set the lighting control to the autolamps position.
  • The ambient light level is low enough that high beams are required.

    Emergency Locking

    Each door has a backup power system which allows the door to function if your vehicle has no power. The system has a limited number of operations before the power is depleted and turns off. When the system turns off, the door remains open and unlatched and does not close.

    If your vehicle has no power and the backup power system is turned off, you can close and secure your vehicle by manually resetting each door latch using a key in the position shown.
