View Full Version : Headlights always on

Recently my headlights are always turning on. Normally they turn themselves on automatically when it is dark, but now they come on as soon as I put the hand brake down.

Could the sensor that normally detects the light levels outside be bad?

Exactly what I was thinking. Check that as well as connections to it.

Now the question is...where is the sensor?

I didn't even know that was there when I painted the defroster vent.

HA, fixed it. It turns out the sensor is fine. But my defroster vent (and dashboard in general) is bent and twisted. The defroster vent broke into pieces and one of the pieces was sitting over the sensor. Once I remove all the cracked and broken pieces, the lights stay off during the day.

I was thinking about this this morning. I'd like to tie my drl's in w/ the als so that they only come on when light is kinda dim.
