I am not to impressed with the auto hi beam thing. Mine hi beams rarely come on.

I live off dirt roads, characteristically narrow, sometimes covered by hanging tree branches. Once I get off the dirt roads I am on black asphalt roads which are unlighted. To this, add a rainy morning and you will quickly appreciate as much light as you can get out in front of you. The high beams clicking on and off are distracting, perhaps only to me.

I've owned past vehicles that had auto hi-beams which functioned with much less false positives. It is obvious Chrysler could have paid more attention to the details of this system.

I did not buy an option so I could turn it off because it does not work as it should, at least in my environment (which is not many miles north of Chrysler's world head quarters). I also take offense to your attitude, this thread was discussing the auto hi-beam functionality and it seems many share my observations. I certainly think your comment was inappropriate in the context of this thread.

What a strange feature.

You could take some electrical tape and cover the bottom 1/2 of the sensor. It makes it less sensative.

Turned mine off. Seemed way too sensitive.

I turned mine off as well. It seemed to never be on when I wanted it on because of reflections or street lights. The auto-headlight feature though works pretty good. My wife 2010 Subara Legacy is much more sensitive, just driving under an overpass turns her lights on! I haven't seen that behavior with my truck.
