When the steering wheel is turned (on a curve, for example), the road ahead in the direction in which the vehicle is being turned is illuminated. (The left bending lamp comes on when the vehicle is turned leftward, and the right bending lamp comes on when the car is turned rightward.)
► If either bending lamp is kept on for about 15 minutes, it automatically goes off. If you wish to make it come on again, first turn the steering wheel back from its turned position to the straight-ahead position.
► The amount of steering wheel operation necessary to illuminate the bending
lamps changes according to the vehicle speed. (The lower the vehicle speed, the
more steering wheel operation is necessary.)
However, the lamps can be set before driving to illuminate with just a small amount of steering wheel operation.
► The AFS does not work in any of the following circumstances:

Adaptive Front lighting System (AFS) indications
In the event of an abnormality in the AFS, a warning display message appears in the information window of the multi-information display and the “AFS OFF” warning lamp in the meter cluster flashes.
► If the warning display is displayed, the system may be malfunctioning. We recommend you to consult a MITSUBISHI MOTORS Authorized Service Point.
► If the “AFS OFF” warning lamp flashes while you are driving, stop the vehicle
in a safe place, turn the ignition switch to the “ACC” or “LOCK” position, then
restart the engine.
If the “AFS OFF” warning lamp stays off, the AFS is normal.
► When the compact spare wheel is fitted on the vehicle, the AFS may not work normally.
Fit a standard wheel on the vehicle in place of the compact spare wheel as soon as possible.
