Auto high beams

Can my 2012 grand cherokee altitude be programmed for auto high beams? I feel like this is something that should have been included in my truck. My though is that it's something the dealership might have to unlock being its used.

There is a sensor behind the rear view mirror in the Wk2's that are equipped with auto high beams. There is also a function in the in the menu settings that has to be turned on. To answer your question......I'm not sure if their is some aftermarket work around to make auto high beams work on non equipped Wk2's. Check your menu settings to see if its available.

Thanks for the help. I went through the settings and there was nothing available. The sensor on the mirror, do you know what it looks like or what I am looking for?

It is part of a large shroud around the rearview mirror. There is a camera inside that controls the high beams. It is progressive based on the length away from other cars. You would need the HID lamps also. Most likely this would be an expensive upgrade. it is a completely different mirror.

Auto high beams are more of an irritation than a help. When the you drive slower than a certain speed - like you would on a bad gravel or dirt road - the high beams do not work and you cannot see where you are going.

I disabled my Jeep's auto high beams two weeks after I got it

I suppose everyone has their own opinions. My 2012 Limited is equipped with auto high beams and I think they're great. They work much better than I thought they would.
