Ok my 2011 DS4 Dsport has the xenon directional headlights, my question is can you turn the direction headlight on and off via the onboard car set up?

You can turn the Adaptive Lighting on and off but think this option is the the cornering fog lights as when i turn this option off the cornering fog lights stop working.

Any help on the Directional headlights will be appreciated.

Why would you want to tun them off?

Never found anything to do that on the C6 BTW so suspect the answer is no, you can't.

Hi Dave...trying to fault find a problem with the lights.

It states the following in the DS4 owners manual " system is activated by default.The system is activated or
deactivated in the vehicle configuration menu.
The state of the system stays in memory on
switching off the ignition. "

Only problem is i cannot find the setting to do this?

On the old C4 VTS you can activate & deactivate directional headlamps. See below

I previously had the C4 VTS and had the option in the menu.

On the DS4 the option is not available? the only thing i can think of is because there is a fault on the system maybe the option has been removed from the menu.

The fault i am getting on the display is "directional Headlight Faulty" and the headlight icon flashes

On the VTS "directional Headlight Faulty" and the headlight icon flashes means one of the height sensors for self levelling has failed. In my case the rear one each time.

I dont get this on the DS would you still think it is the rear sensor?
