I agree, they should come on just before the sun sets. Even close to fully
dark is way too late.

Could be right...the control may be a "delay" adjustment control and not a
"sensitivity" adjustment control. My neighbor who owns the car isn't sure
either (neither he or his wife). But then they're just some of many I know
that don't know what their car's light controls are or do, which isn't good.
:-( The Malibu I once had didn't have such a control.
Do the ambient sensors go bad sometimes? I would think it would either work or
not work, but maybe not. Or does the sensor lens possibly darken or cloud over
in the intense sunlight? How ever my neighbor has LeSabre set for, all of his
lights (tail/marker/reg. headlights) are always on when the car is running,
even in bright noon sun. So there must be some control for that somewhere...or
his is not working right either. Maybe controlled through the menu panel?
