Auto Headlight Feature

Hey guys,

Recently i have noticed that my headlights (have hid's) and interior lights stay on during the day when the sun is shining bright. It never use to do this before and when i try to switch it to manual mode it still stays on. Anybody know what would cause this problem or how to fix it?

No i didn't, the day time running lights still work. I have an 05 model and the turn signals are the day time running lights and they work. It's just that the headlights stay on when there not suppose too.

Make sure dash light sensor is not obstructed in any way.

Probably. They're meant to fail deadly. If they fail, the headlights should be on.
