Tesla Model 3: High Beam Headlights

Push the left-hand steering column lever away from you and release to turn the high beam headlights on continuously. To cancel, push the lever away from you again.

To briefly flash the high beam headlights, pull the lever towards you and release.

High Beam Headlights


The high beam headlights can automatically switch to low beam when there is light detected in front of Model 3 (for example, from an oncoming vehicle). To turn this feature on or off, touch Controls > Lights > Auto High Beam.

Note: Your chosen setting is retained until you manually change it.

In situations where Auto High Beam is turned on but the high beams are turned off because light is detected in front of Model 3, you can temporarily turn on the high beams by pulling the lever toward you.

The following indicator lights are visible on the touchscreen to show the status of the headlights:

Low beam headlights are on.


High beam headlights are on and
Auto High Beam is disabled or currently unavailable.

Auto High Beam is enabled and high
beams are on. Model 3 is ready to turn off the high beams if light is detected.

Auto High Beam is enabled but high
beams are not on because light is detected in front of Model 3. When light is no longer detected, high beams automatically turn back on.

Warning: Auto High Beam is an aid only and is subject to limitations. It is the driver's responsibility to make sure that the headlights are appropriately adjusted for weather conditions and driving circumstances.

Headlights After Exit

When Headlights after Exit is on, the exterior headlights remain on when you stop driving and park Model 3 in low lighting conditions.

They automatically turn off after one minute or when Model 3 locks. When off, headlights turn off when you engage the Park gear and open a door.

To turn this feature on or off, touch Controls > Lights > Headlights after Exit.

Headlight Adjustments

To adjust the angle of the headlights, touch Controls > Service > Adjust Headlights, then follow the onscreen instructions. You can choose which headlight you would like to adjust by selecting it on the touchscreen.

Warning: Proceed with caution when adjusting headlights. Tesla has carefully calibrated the position of the headlights to be in an optimum position for most driving scenarios. Tesla recommends that you do not adjust headlights unless you are familiar with how headlights should be adjusted. Once adjusted, you will be unable to automatically restore them to their originally calibrated position.

Contact Tesla for assistance when adjusting headlights.
