Hi all. New Motown kid here!

I bought an '07 Dingo a couple of weeks ago. Great SUV and far superior to my previous '99 and '02 Dingos.

As the title suggests, when in automatic headlight mode the headlights never go off. Even in the bright summer sun. Can the sensitivity of the sun sensor be adjusted?

Welcome to the DurangoZ from NC! Not sure if it can be adjusted or not. Glad you joined us, enjoy!

This is going to sound like a stupid question but is the switch in the auto position or on position?
If it is in the auto position there are a couple of mechanical things that could be wrong. It could be a stuck relay or the photo switch could be bad. As for a user adjustable setting, well that one I have no idea about.

Oh, and welcome to the site.

Another dumb question, is the sensor on the dashboard, could it be covered by something or maybe an inspection sticker puts it in the shade (happened to my Dad's old car). It is worth a shot, much easier than a mechanical problem, good luck!

Thanks for the welcome. The switch is in the 'A' position, not the 'On' position. I'm leaning towards the photo sensor being bad.

As problems go this is a minor one! :)

No, nothing is covering the sensor. If i stumble across a new sensor online I will replace it. Not really a big problem.
