2020 Forester auto headlights delay


Recommended Posts

I have a 2020 Subaru Forester Premium.

The auto dip headlights are not ideal in that if you use the auto headlights setting they turn on with the dark and off with the light as they are supposed to do - great.

If I use the auto dip setting old there it takes 25-30 seconds on low beam after a light has passed (sign, headlights, etc.) before they turn back onto high beam - which is totally unacceptable as I libve and travel in the open roads often at night.

Subaru have told me that they cannot change that and to just smokily use manual lights - which means I have to revert to turning them on at dark and remembering to turn them off in the daylight - which I think sucks as it is a selling feature of the car in the first instance.
Has a anyone else had this trouble or know a fix for it other than reverting to manual lights to get high beam when you need it?

I have the Forester 2021 Premium and it has the same issue.  I dropped it at the local dealer and overnight they were able to confirm that it did take 30 seconds to come back onto high beam.  They have raised it as a technical issue so let's see what happens.


Did you make any progress on this?


BTW, I had an Outback 2022 loan car overnight and the headlights went immediately (under one second)  back onto high beam.

Update:  Local dealer only seems to take action when prompted.  They have now contacted Subaru 'HQ' and have been asked for further information.  Dealer says they won't take my evidence (videos) but need to be done by the dealer, so giving the car to them for a week next month.  (Still happens)

      Afternoon team,
      im new to the group first time posting. Im hoping some body can help me get my launch control all dialled in on my link g4x. Ive had the computer and car all tuned from chris at prestige awesome knowlegable guy super happy with the results but now im wanting to get my launch/anti lag all dialled in. Ive been reading multiple different forums etc all with different conflicking information which has made me nervious with what do i listen to this or that if you get what i mean. Now ive started to make myself familiar with my PClink software etc the past few weeks and im eager to learn how to do minor setups or tweaks etc so im not relieing on my tuner so much and obviously saving myself abit hurt in the back pocket. 
      Now back to the question at hand.... Im wondering if theres and one who could please share there knowledge and wisdom with setting all my values, timing, fuel etc when i have launch control armed and engaged, or even a launch tune file they can possibly send me to load onto my tune. Ive figured out the setup of my digital inputs turning launch control on etc and its obvisously on its pre set factory settings. It engages but doesnt sound the greatest or as angry as it should i feel. Hence reaching out to you good buggers. 
      Cheers in advance for any info and help yous maybe able to give me.
      Cheers Shaun
