I was cleaning the dash and stumbled across it.  I guess its in the manual somewhere.  

 

1.  Switch Engine Off and Door Closed.  (Lights are in Auto all the time so cannot say if that's needed or not)

2. Flash Headlights

 

 

Close and Lock Doors - seems to stay on about 20 Seconds.  I can not see anywhere to adjust the times.

 

 

I can honestly say I was un-aware.

Me to Led, i was only pulling your leg.

It's a nice feature I guess. However most smart phones have built in torches nowadays, doubt I would use it. Maybe to show off?? Lol

It would be handy if you could get the headlights to come on from the remote. Like when you are looking for your car in a big car park in the dark ;)

It`s not something I would use, so, if I did know about it when I got it, I`ve since forgotten about it.  (along with a lot of the other features).

Did anyone know about this? I looked on the web and there is no mention of it.

Or have I found the new feature?

What exactly are "follow me home lights" Les?

 

I saw the auto off lights in the manual though.

The Headlights can be switched on for a period of 20 seconds while you lock the car and find the door.  In that sense light your way home.  

 

They don't seem to switch off straight away when the car is locked.

Ah, I see now, though no good to me as my headlights face across the road when I park up  :lol:

Probably undocumented as no one has found any use for it so far...  :lol:

You've made me wonder if the GT-R has this! Can't try at the moment but even if it has I have to park nose against a brick wall so wouldn't help much...

Answer: Yes it does, but.... the rear lights come on too so may well be useful.

If rear lights stay on aren't they "Followed Me Home Lights"? :D

 

In truth, I didn't realise headlights that can remain on were (sometimes) referred to as "Follow Me Home Lights".  I may have to peruse a manual or two now.  Although I think I might have noticed a switch or button marked "FMH", and been curious.  Very curious . . . :blush:

2007 350Z (my second Zed) - When you give up driving, you’re not going to look back wistfully on the car you owned with the nicest dashboard top or speaker grilles. You’re going to remember a car for its excitement and how it made you feel.
2011 Yaris 1.33 (my third Yaris) - With an extra 30cc and an extra gear it's become the S-Class of small cars.  Far less pretentious though.

You have had a few GT-R John - is this a documented feature on those cars.  I am very excited while not the most useful feature I still seem to have found something which is not commonly known - like no mention on the web for the 370z...  :yahoo:

 

Its the car that just keeps giving....  Now if I can find the button with the extra 100bhp....

I remember reading this in the manual when I first got the car but had forgotten all about it.  Here'e the relevant page(s) from the manual:

 

Auto Headlights.JPG

 

And the timer adjustment:

 

Comfort Settings.JPG

 

I actually tried it last night, not totally useless if someone at home forgets to turn the outside lights on in winter!  Of course only helpful if your car is right outside your front door...

Excellent find, Dave. Now all I need to do is rebuild my house so the front door is facing the car when I park at night (or maybe go into the drive forwards, instead of reversing in).

One of these options is easier...

Maybe you could move house to use this new found feature
