So my battery is A-OK, my problem was that I accidentally left the bluetooth dongle connected and it obviously drained the battery 🤦‍♂️ Anyway, all fine after a charge.
The setting under lights was there and disabled, so with great excitement I enabled the option and.... nothing. No difference :rolleyes:

Thanks for the tips Run Buh, I'll try looking at those and as you say, won't just copy verbatim. Thanks too for the warning for the headlight settings, but sorry you took the pain. I was actually looking at those settings as they seemed inclined to be related, so glad I didn't touch them in the end.
Let us know @sierra055, watch don's video...he demostrates how to activate it, by stalk
@Runbuh, did you get as fas as having HBA selectable as an option ? Like sierra055 has ?

I have PDLS+. There was nothing for me to enable via PIWIS/x431 to make my HBA work. I have it enabled in the MFD (Instrument Cluster) and use it every time I leave/enter my neighborhood at night.

I see....what were you trying to activate then? You have intersection ligting if you have PDLS+. right ?

Once enabled you need to pull high beam stalk to activate the settings.
Thanks, yes I'm pushing the stalk but it's only turning the high beams on as per normal. If I understand correctly, there should now be an initial setting of automatic high beam indicated by a new headlight with an A in the speedo dial, then pushing the stalk again would manually turn the high beam on.

The option is enabled in the MFD as well, though I note that mine says full beam assist, which seems correct, though I notice @Don16 video shows dynamic full beam

I imagine difference between pre and post Facelift (mine is pre).

Have you enabled to the option on front camera(windscreen one) and headlights?

Also it needs to be dark for you to be able to activate high beam assist via stalk.

I think don is right......you have some of it "done" now Sierra....burt missing other modules to be enabled....the hunt continues !!
The way in which @Runbuh utilizes HBA, driving, is a must have !!

@Don16, are you a 2016 Turbo with Xenon or LEDS ?

What is the L/R driving option there for ?

Driving overseas maybe ?
Yes, I used it when I drove my right-hand-drive Macan in Europe. It changes the beam pattern to avoid dazzling oncoming drivers when on dipped beam.

I have LKA, so I assume the camera is already enabled? Is there somewhere I can check to confirm?
Tests were done in closed garage with headlights on auto setting (and they were lit)

Do you get the "Letter A inside a light icon" when you push the stalk forward one time? If you do, then you just need to go drive around. HBA does nothing until you go over 38mph (I think that's the speed).

The functional LKA camera needs to be associated to the new function.........in the Front Camera section, look maybe for "main beam assist." to activated...."main beam assist urban area detection". to ON

No, I don't get that light. That's the one I'm expecting to see. When I push the stalk forward, I get only the blue high beam light in the tacho.

Great suggestion, I'll take a look and report back.

Thanks guys for the continued suggestions, I really appreciate it!

I do think I pull the stalk toward me once to get this light, not push. If I pull twice I get the normal high beams. Not sure what happens if I push.

Ha, yes indeed! With some pointers from @Don16 and @Teddis I now have high beam assist working from X431 Launch!
There were two additional settings under front end electronics and front camera that had to be configured. I want to confirm the setting in front camera was actually necessary as it wasn't until I configured the front end electronics option that it began working, but as soon as I've done that, I'll report back here and update the coding sheet with the required settings.

Thanks again to @Teddis, @Run Buh and @Teddis for the assistance

EXCELLENT!

Could you document here exactly what all you've changed? That way we have an archive to point people to, and someone can go update the Google document.
