Customer Question
I have a 2000...

I have a 2000 pontiac grand prix GTP and the dash lights and the a.c. display lights have been coming on and off sometimes they'll be on during the day and not at night then sometimes they won't come on at all. But if I mess with the switch to turn the lights on manually I can get them to come on but not stay on

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the fuses? The dashboard bulbs?

I checked all the fuses and bulbs are done cause I can move the manual switch for the headlights kinda in between settings and they'll pop on.. I think it's that module I keep reading about

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Grand Prix yourself? What have you tried so far?

I checked all the fuses, but the switch to turn the headlights from automatic to manual I can mess with that switch in between settings and they'll pop on but only when I move that switch like in between settings.?

Mechanic's Assistant: What confuses you?

I'm confused cause all the lights will work sometimes when I start the car during the day but they won't at night

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

This all started happening when I had the passenger window motor/actuator fixed at a shop

I usually don't have to mess with the switch cause the lights are automatic.is there a sensor or module that controls turning the dash lights on an off when it's day and night.?
