Central electronic module (CEM) (4/56) for information from the reversing light switch (3/10) (manual transmission)
Central electronic module (CEM) for information from the twilight sensor (7/12)
The headlight control module (HCM) is activated automatically when the ignition switch is turned to position II. In order to turn out the light beam, the
following conditions must be fulfilled:
