    Default Auto headlights - sensitivity

    Is there any way of changing the sensitivity of auto headlights ?

    IMO, they are far too sensitive, staying on during the day in anything but bright sunlight.

    Plasma - thanks for your post. The windscreen had to be changed within a couple of weeks of getting the car - so I dont really know what the auto lights were really like before.

    best bet is to find another member near you with auto-lights and then you can compare in the same conditions

    as a test. if you remove the sensor with the engine on/auto lights on and let it hang carefully.. if the lights go out after about 10 secs or so this is pointing to the gelpack being misty and/or the sensor not aligned correctly with the windscreen.. This is how i tested mine to see if mine was faulty or not and it wasnt!
