light sensor

Anyone know how to adjust the light sensor so when the automatic light switch is on everytime you start your car the headlights come on, whether its day or night..?

not possible. the auto mode is made so that it only comes on when it's dark, and off when it's light. why don't you just turn it on manually?

You could probably talk to your tech at the dealership, I believe there is a way to adjust the sensitivity via the computer.

No.. I meant to add the whole thing.. the switch and all... right now all I have is the regular on/off one (with a slot for parking lights)... I don't have the "Auto" feature
