:bang::bang::bang: right tootling along to work today and I've always had the lights on auto, only time i turn them to manual is if i need high beam.

The lights are on??? at about 8am and I'm sure it's light enough for them to go off.

So where abouts is the dusk sensor? I'm hoping it only needs a clean, if there is a fault then the lights would stay on regardless in auto? otherwise I don't know what to do other than examiner and I've fallen out with all FIAT dealers near me :mad:

I don't bother with them as i found they always seemed to be on unless in bright sunshine.

Dan, what sensitivity level are you using? The more sensitive, the longer they take to turn off?

Our 1.6 had a problem where they'd go on and never come off, switch the ignition off and on and it'd sort it. Got a new sensor fitted under warranty, then a new body computer - eventually sorted it :).
