I've noticed the "auto high-beam dimming" feature doesn't work worth a crap! If I turn on my headlights to "auto", the high beams won't come on unless it's COMPLETELY black out. Even a streetlight will make them dim down. Is there an adjustment for these somewhere? Am I missing something obvious here?


Is there an adjustment for the headlight beams? Bringing them up just a little would do wonders! I really dislike driving this truck at night until I get these issues settled. I feel like I'm driving half blind!

Well I can, but that defeats the purpose of this device doesn't it? That doesn't answer my question or solve the problem. (I'm not trying to come across as a jerk here)

I find auto high/low beam headlights to be useless...use it manually as noted above.

I have not looked for a RAM service manual, but on 2 of my older cars there was an adjustment screw that would raise or lower the beam. If you want them higher there may be something like this in the RAM

Are we talking adjusting the height of the headlight beam? If so, there is an adjustment screw under the hood, but I don't know which way is up...

I haven't used mine much but I do notice it doesn't take much light for the auto function to turn the high beams off. I think I'm going to disable mine and keep it in manual.

As for a service manual, i think it's going to be hard trying to find one now or soon. But if one does show up, i wouldn't be too surprised if it's in the high 2 figure range or even the 3 figure range.

I used to have a BMW that had auto high beam dimming. It was way to sensitive and would go to low beam with the least amount of light in the area. It wasn't until I was in the country on two-lane highways with no street lights that it worked perfectly. And so I began to realize that this feature, which I imagine is the same in the Ram, is really not going to work well or at all in a city or urban area.
