Hi, I’m Ron and I can help you.
I have been in this business since 1975 and also teach automotive repair. I am confident we can resolve your problem together. Please understand that I don't know your skill level. I can't see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle either, so it may take a few replies to get to satisfactory results. Please be patient!
I also try to give all of the information you may need, expecting a “positive rating” in return. I will also continue assisting you after you have rated me, if necessary. If there is any reason I cannot get a positive rating, please let me know why “in advance”, so I can go another direction for you. I am sorry you’re having this problem; I’ll help you through it.

There shouldn't be a sensor for this. The brightness is stationary with headlights of and adjustable with them on with your inside dimmer control. If this is working ok, then check for a bad ground/pin in the radio connectors. If the grounds are good, then the radio itself is the problem.

Thanks, Ron
