Q: Automatic headlights not working

asked by on

The automatic headlights in my car don't work.

The automatic headlights require the sun sensor on the dash and rear view mirror to work correctly. The issue could also stem from a faulty automatic headlight switch module. I recommend having a mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, run a diagnostic on your inoperable headlight issue, and quote the repairs needed.
