A similar idea is to buy a headlight switch with the "Auto" setting and leave it in Auto. It will automatically turn your lights on when you start the truck.Sorry not aware of that option even being available from the factory.
A few other thoughts. Do daytime running lights make you compliant? If so...
STAR Case Case Number 910090199 Vehicle Issue Can daytime running lamps (DRL) be turned on.;Yes. If vehicle is equipped with J1850 Bus. System or Component Activation / Upgrading Issues;Customer Concern (No DTCs);Daytime Running Lamps (DRL) Recommendation Use the DRB to program the Front control module. Go to BODY, go to FCM/IPM, then go to MISC. go to ENABLE DRL, then page back to except change. Turn key off and start engine put into gear and DRL should come on. Modification Date

Another thought would be to get in the habit of turning the lights on at start-up. Then leave them on until you get to your destination. Put something on the seat or dash to remind yourself.
You still have to have a sensor somewhere to "sense" the light conditions.A similar idea is to buy a headlight switch with the "Auto" setting and leave it in Auto. It will automatically turn your lights on when you start the truck.

This thread is pretty sad. Are we so lazy we cannot even remember to turn on headlights when conditions require it? :facepalm: I know I would remember if I was fined for not turning them on.
As KOG posted, the simplest solution (and cheapest) is turn them on when you start the vehicle and just leave them on.

Every once in a while I've noticed this too. Just another clueless driver behind the wheel. I just don't understand how one cannot notice the lights are not as bright as they usually are.......Talk about lazy drivers. It seems that it was possible for the lazy driver to drive after dark with the dim DRL on and forget to turn on the regular headlamps. Lawyers have to protect these idiots from themselves.
Actually, the last one I noticed driving with just his DRL's on after dusk was fairly new model with lit gauges (I could see them as I passed him). So in all fairness, he may have been under the perception his "headlights" were completely on.ImperialCrown said:.....Or don't know (or care) that they can't see where their gauges are.
Our Journey is the same. Many times I turn them on manually if I'm driving when it transitions from just before dusk to complete darkness.valiant67 said:My opinion, the auto headlights on my 2012 Challenger and the 2005 300C which it replaced don't come on early enough at dusk so I end up using them manually anyway a good bit.
