The function can be deactivated/reactivated in the MY CAR menu system under My XC60 Active Bending Lights or under Settings Active Bending Lights or under Settings Car settings Car settings Light settings Light settings Active Active Bending Lights.

See page 133 for a description of the menu system.

NOTE
This function is only active in twilight or dark conditions, and only when the vehicle is in motion.
