View Full Version : ALS sensor gone...

Hi there well I was gonna do the mod for the ALS where u just put in a 10 ohm resistor so i got the vent cover off and got the sensor turned go to lift it out and it fell back in the hole... I cant even see it... any suggestions. I got the total opposite effect of what I was goin for.. it especially looks dumb cuz some lady ran into the front of my car and busted a headlight. But Im now getting some autodynasty ones so not a total loss.

Double check your info because IIRC the 10ohm resistor was supposed to replace the light sensor...if that's not the case either buy a new sensor or take apart the dash to get to the bottom of the ventilation case.

Ya it is supposed to replace it but the sensor and socket or w.e for the sensor fell down and i was just wondering if there was an easier way to do what i was trying to do than ripping the whole dash apart.

I doubt it. If you have one of those grabber things or a flexible magnetic pick up you could go fishing around for it.
