Somebody knows how to deactivate (electrically or mechanically) the autoleveling of headlights? I have the Eibach's springs and I always had problems with the leveling of headlights. I tried to adjust it with screwdrivers and nothing. I bought the Corksport Level adjuster, waste of money. So now i want to cancel the autoleveling.

Thanks.

You can turn it off/on under the lighting menu on the infotainment settings screen for a 2017 mazda 3 GT. My car does not have the AFS switch as indicated in the quick start color manual.

Beyond that, you can pull the fuse or unplug the battery as the manual indicates the system will need to be reset in those two situations.

Is it possible you did not do it correctly. I mean a lot of people here have lowering springs and don't have issues.

Dash button says, "AFS OFF".

I don't have that option :nerd: I'm from Perú. And the configurations of the cars are very different.

Maybe, but i'm tired of trying. Here in Peru, the roads are very very very (x100000) bad, so we need a good system of lighting.

Jet3, have you tried going back to the stock connection regarding the auto leveler, then adjusting the headlights manually.

or reset the manual adjustment and manipulate the auto adjuster with the CS part.

I am wondering if your lights are just not aimed right as you have adjusted them so many times.

When you lower the car, you may need to re-initialize the system to make it work.
This procedure resets the sensors after the ride height change so that the auto-leveling will work properly.
Read this post and give it a try. :smile2:
