How do you change from high to low beam headlights?

Your Altima has both high and low beam functionality. This applies whether you have halogen bulbs or xenon bulbs. Changing from one to the other is easy. Here’s how:

  1. Push the headlight lever forward to change from your low beams to your high beams.

  2. Pull the lever backward to change from your high beams to your low beams.

To flash your high beams but not select them:

  1. Pull and release the headlight lever quickly.

Tip

The headlights must be set to on or auto for this to work.
