...this problem occurs day or night?...if they auto-shut off...this is incorrect, unless you do not have the key in the ignition...now if it auto-on then that's okay...but auto-off is totally unacceptable~

...it's a safety thing...we want to see you on the road~

not convinced there IS a problem here, have you come out to find the lights are still on? that's a problem....if the key ain't in the ignition.

your day sensor is not working, does your instrument panel dim at night or stay full-intensity always? we should begin looking for this "eye" what senses daylight if this is the case...will investigate if necessary~
