How do I adjust the auto light sensitivity?

When your headlights are in automatic mode, they will come on whenever the vehicle detects that it is dark outside. However, you can adjust the sensitivity of the light sensor by choosing one of five settings: Max (lights will come on when it is still pretty light out), High, Mid, Low, and Min (lights won’t come on until it is pretty dark out). To choose which setting you would like to use, follow these steps: 1. Turn the ignition to On, while making sure the vehicle is completely stopped. 2. Press the Menu button. 3. Use the +/- buttons to highlight Customize Settings, then press Source. 4. Use the +/- buttons to highlight Lighting Setup, then press Source. 5. Use the +/- buttons to highlight Auto Light Sensitivity, then press Source. 6. Use the +/- buttons to choose between Max, High, Mid, Low, and Min, then press Source.
