Auto Headlights, Automatic Headlight.

Hello I think it's possible to enable auto headlight but it would require to enable I think the twilight sensor.

Maybe it works if I add it.

The AlfaOBD shows on read systems informations that it reads when the headlight switch is in auto position. But it does not perform. In any condition. Probably its because the twilight sensor is not enabled. I heard from a journey forum that the sensor required is in the. Interior rear view mirror. (The one with auto dimming) has the sensor in the back as other forum stated. It may be possible.

I thought that sensor was for auto high-beams. So it turns the high-beams on in there are no cars in front in either direction and it turns them off if a car approaches or goes in front of you. I thought the auto light sensor is the dome like thing next to the central speaker on the console.

I can try to cover the sensor behind the mirror to see if it triggers lights turning on. I can do this for both sensors and will let you know.

Remember to also cover up the dash sensor. I think it requires both sensors so.

So I went ahead and activate the twilight sensor. And now my headlights if I leave it in the auto position turn off when the vehicle is off and on when the vehicles is on. I think it's missing the necessary sensor or maybe other configuration to make the auto headlights work how they should.

But for now they turn on and off with the ignition. If the switch is left to the auto position.

But indeed the sensor or required hardware. It's missing or maybe the correct setting. I also went to the dealership and saw 2-3 latitude with the normal mirror. So the mirror is not needed.

Does anyone have an idea of where the HVAC Module is located?

Apparently I need to attach the sunoad sensor. But the wiring is not on the sensor location. Apparently Chrysler tucks away the cable. And I need to know where is the module so I can track the cable location. And route it to where it's supposed to be.

Jaime,
I asked a dealership electrician today about the modifications and sensors needed for the Auto-headlight feature. He told me that the sensor for this feature in MP Compass is the infrared sensor for the rain sensor (auto-wipers), located on the box on the windshield behind the rearview mirror. So, to have this feature you need to install the rain sensor in your windshield.
