Anyone else have to push their high beam stalk twice to get your high beams on ?

    I do but not every time. Also My high beam assist never works. Am I missing a setting somewhere?

    On the GT2, pushing once sets autohigh beam/dynamic low beam on. Pushing again locks high beams on like old school cars

    Yes, the first push is to activate the auto high beams, the second push is to activated them manually.

    In order for the high beam assist to work a certain set of paramenters need to be met.

    Here is a quick video explaining how the system works.

    If you turn the lights to ON, instead of AUTO, then the high beams will flip on and off with 1 push just like normal.

    Found that out the other night trying to see if they would work like normal. :D

    This and the auto wipers drive me nuts the most on this car.

    The auto high beam picks up many house lights, etc. flicking them down and then back up.
    Oh and how do you turn off the auto high beam when high beam assist is active and on low beam mode.
    The answer is you can't do it without flashing someone with your high beams.

    Then the wipers seem to have a mind of their own. Work fine one minute, then don't wipe enough, turn up the sensitivity, and next thing they are running on high o_O

    Some technologies are nice, but I find the auto wipers and headlights on the Premium to be VERY annoying. I try not to use them if possible, which is even more frustrating. They are definitely not engineered correctly.

    Maybe there's an issue with your car. My wipers work great, my headlights work great. There are certain conditions for each which depend on the cameras and sensors on your car.

    Maybe turn the headlights to “on” rather than “auto” to deactivate without flashing?

    Hmmm, I tried it last night and well... Yeah. You turn your lights on manually to "ON" and there is no auto high low.
    I had always left mine in Auto thinking that it was for auto on/off. Ran the last car for 9 years without moving the lights off of auto.

    Thanks, learned something (and you're probably like RTFMo_O)

    I had and ‘03 Tacoma, and I just left them on for the life of the vehicle. They’d turn off with the ignition.

    Auto lights work perfectly fine for me, but I agree, the auto-wiper/speed is so inconsistent.
