Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.

This can be due to a faulty light sensor.If the light sensor is detecting good lighting it can cause this issue here.The first thing that needs to be done is to have the fault codes read out of all computers to see what codes are set.Once this is done any codes set then need diagnosed to then locate and repair this issue here.If no codes are set the scan tool is used to monitor the light sensor signal to see if the sensor needs replaced.Some electrical testing may be required as well.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service,your 5 star rating is appreciated ( should be a link to click on here or above).You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete
