Kia Cadenza: Head lamp leveling Device / Auto Head lamp leveling Unit Description and Operation

Kia Cadenza YG 2016-2024 Service Manual / Body Electrical System / Head lamp leveling Device / Auto Head lamp leveling Unit Description and Operation

Description
According to driving environment and loading state of vehicle, head lamp lighting direction is changed to keep the driver''s visibility range and to protect the driver''s vision from glare, aiming at safety driving.
Sensor mounting on the rear center arm drives the actuator mounting on the head lamp since sensing the input signal following the vehicle''s statical changes.
Head lamp beam is automatically operated by chassis tilt.
Purpose of AHLS(Auto Headlamp Leveling System)
Compensation of headlamp visual range for changes in vehicle load.
Preventing oncoming traffic being blinded by excessive glare.
Meeting regulation
Operation
Operating Procedure
1.
Suspension angle change resulted from vehicle''s load change.
2.
Height sensor signal change
3.
Calculation of HLLD signal by AHLS ECU algorithm.
4.
Sending a proper signal to HLLD (head lamp levelling device) and driving actuator.
5.
Actuation of HLLD and compensation of headlamp beam range.
Operating Condition
IGN1 ON & Head lamp low bean ON
Sensor angle changed over 1° and keeping 10~12seconds with vehicle standing.
Sensor angle changed over 1° and keeping 10~12seconds and when vehicle runs over 20km/h with constant speed.
Leveling control is off after controlling HLLD for few seconds.
To eliminate mechanical tolerance, the lamp position is always reached from the lower side.
System characteristics
1.
Height sensor and link.
No.
