What year, make, model…


#3

Other than year, make, and model, all these systems have a control module and an ambient light sensor. The problem could be in either.

@BustedKnuckles:

Don’t all cars have “manual override” of automatic headlights? There’s laws in my state (and many others) W/R/T “lights on” in construction zones and when wipers are in operation, regardless of ambient light. Impossible to copmply in a car w/o a simple “ON” setting.

OP needs to clarify whether s/he meant “head lights will not come on auto(mobile)” or “head lights will not come on auto(matic mode).” Two different problems with different solutions.

I guess I read the first option; you read the second.

@meanjoe75fan, I think you basically nailed it. But the post is so obscure, you could read almost anything in it. Hopefully we get more specific info.


#6

Something is wrong with the auto function. Vague questions get vague answers. Might as well have asked “Why won’t my car run?”


#7

Fuse/circuit breaker, you turned it off by accident, the light sensor on the dash is faulty.
