Just noticed another quirk. When i indicate left, the front left Fog light comes on and when I indicate right, the front right fog light comes on.Is this supposed ti happen or just dodgy wiring or am i losing it
It had occurred to me afterwards that these are meant to be "directional" lights. On the C5 the directional lights engaged when you turned the steering wheel,and in the direction of the turn. On the DS4, the fog light came on (pointing straight ahead) while stationary in traffic when the indicator was switched on.Is this really meant to be directional lighting?Must consult the manual again
I think your both right. On mine they come on when the steering wheel I is turned more than about 10 degrees at less than about 30 mph and also when the indicator is on along with the headlights an the steering is straight.
The C5 had a dedicated light in the front light clusters which would light up when you turned the steering wheel. Simple really.I don't notice any lighting effect on the DS4 despite the "directional lights" being configured on on the menu.
I'm noticing how annoying these are now because of the dark mornings and evenings. They're a pain for me as most of the streets around my area are narrow so I spend most of mytime at low speeds manoeuvring around parked cars and if there is an oncoming car it sometimes thinks I am flashing them to pass, either that or they think my car is having some sort of fit!Also when I'm sat at traffic lights with my indicator on it just dazzles other road users.
Does anyone know if there is a way to disable this function? If not I'm wondering whether to just take out the fog light bulbs
You can turn then off via the menu. I'm an ex c5 owner and the cornering lights were great but the bulbs went after 6/9 months. I never replaced them for the remaing 2 and half years of ownership. I find the lights on the ds4 are great and the cornering fog is just not necessary
