Headlight auto dimming equipped?
On new 2018 F150 Diesel Lariat that we have owned since June 2019 does this truck have the headlight auto-dimming option? I have never been able to get into auto-dimming mode if it has such a thing. Headlight switch stays in the "auto" position where headlights do go on as needed for the available light. However I have to switch between high-beam and low-beams manually using the stalk, won't dim when meeting an on-coming vehicle.
There are two reasons I think this truck should have this feature:
(1) From reading the user manual it reads (to me) that it should be on there.
(2) I drove a 2019 F150 XLT for 2 months and that truck did have that feature and I found it really handy by not having to remember to dim headlights. It worked great. On that truck I could turn the headlight auto-dimming feature on and off by pressing the stalk forward. When the auto-dimming was enabled the setting "stuck" so that it was there even after shutting truck off and later restarting. Also, on that truck there was an icon (white circle with an 'A' inside it) that came on when auto-dimming was enabled.
My 2018 F150 Lariat doesn't seem to have or do any of this. Surely this would be a feature on the Lariat if the XLT has it, certainly the manual seems to indicate that.
I asked the Ford dealer about this but they weren't sure, they thought it wasn't on there (this just doesn't seem right to me). I'm trying to find out if it has this feature or not. If not, that's ok, I can live with that. If this feature is on there then I need to find why it isn't working. I would appreciate any help anyone could give. Thanks!
