    Hi guys,

    I have a Seat Leon FR Sport 2019.
    I have always had the coming/leaving home function enabled in settings and up until last week it has been working flawlessly.
    Recently, it has stopped working completely - the headlights turn off as soon as the car is locked and do not turn on automatically when the car is unlocked as per the coming/leaving home function.
    The automatic headlights still work as expected.
    I have tried factory resetting the headhunt, turning the setting off, driving for a few days then turning it back on.

    Any ideas?
    Thanks in advance

    If you press the unlock button again do they come on?

    If my lights weren’t on when I locked the car but it is dark when I unlock it again, I need to press unlock for the lights to come on.

    Hi thanks for the reply,
    No they don't even at night when the lights are automatically on, as soon as I turn the ignition off they turn off, normally they would stay on.
    When I lock the car they remain off and when I unlock they car they remain off.
    I didn't change any settings on the headhunt, this just started happening out of the blue

    Silly question. Have you moved the switch away from the AUTO position? I know you said they come on at night, but if you have them set to the normal headlight position I am fairly sure they turn on and off with ignition (I might be wrong though).

    I assume from the lack of response this could well have been the solution. :lol:

    I can't remember which car I did this one, but switch was 0 - parking lights - headlights - AUTO. So I parked up, and waited, so turned it to sidelights only. When I got going again, I just turned once to headlights only, didn't put to AUTO, and wondering why they don't work...for a good week, until I started my car again, and wondered why my headlights were on in bright daylight!

    He did say “The automatic headlights still work as expected.” so I’d assume that isn’t the solution

    Are they really automatic, or just always on though...
