    Default Auto headlights - adjusting when they come on?

    Is it possible to adjust when the auto headlights come on?

    I can accept that they'll sometimes come on when under an avenue of trees, but sometimes mine will come on as early as 6pm while it's still daylight. Will stay off all day, so I don't think the sensor (whereever that is) is at fault.

    I have to keep switching them off so as not to be mistaken for a Volvo driver

    Can they be adjusted via tech2 so as not to be so sensitive?

    I have the same problem they come on when I am facing my garage door which is ok as the light levels will be low in the shadow of the house, trouble is they stay on then and as you say sometimes before 6pm, seems to be the angle of the light from the Sun makes a difference as they never come on when the sun is high in the sky. Given up turning them off now as it happens to often.

    TBH I'm glad they deleted these on my 05 Vec. Had auto lights & wipers on previous cars and they were a pain in the harris.
