2012 Jaguar XF: Autolamp Delay
January 24, 2013
Jumping into and out of so many different cars, it's hard to get used to the quirks of certain cars. And one thing that always throws me off is the autolamp feature. Sometimes they stay on so long after I lock up the car that I'm not sure if I left the lights on or if it just happens to have a long delay. And I stand there waiting until the lights go out. I don't want to be THAT person who let the battery die after all.
Well, imagine my glee when I saw the autolamp delay option on our 2012 Jaguar XF. The headlight stalk can be turned to set the delay to 30 seconds, a minute or even TWO minutes. Naturally I just turned it to "Off." This might not be a big deal to many people but I thought it was a thoughtful detail. By the way, who would set the delay to two minutes anyway?
