How to disable Adaptive Front Lighting on your Lexus RX

Lexus’s Intelligent Adaptive Front Lighting System, as fitted to the Lexus RX 450h, is a driver-aid that adjusts the direction of the headlights in response to steering inputs and vehicle speed, in effect pointing the low-beam headlights into the corner and improving your view.

The system is enabled by default, but should you wish to temporarily disable it, watch the tutorial video below or read on for our step-by-step ‘how to’.

  1. On the steering wheel of the Lexus RX, press the ‘MENU’ button and use the arrow buttons to cycle through until ‘AFS’ lights up in the dash display.
  2. Press the ‘ENTER’ button on the steering wheel, which moves the dash display indicator to ‘AFS OFF’, disabling the system.
  3. Press the ‘MENU’ button once more to return to the main display.
  4. To re-enable the system, simply repeat the procedure to switch the display from ‘AFS OFF’ to ‘AFS ON’. The Intelligent Adaptive Front-Lighting System is operational once again.
