Question type: Maintenance & Repair

2006 G6. where's the sensor that controls the dash lights? I want to cover it! I hate that I
can't turn on my dash lights when I feel I need them because for me it's hard to see
the speedometer a lot... The manual says it's 'above the speedometer/dash'...? I can't find
it.

Is the plastic dome in the middle of your dashboard top. Right top from your radio #8 in the picture

That's what it is? I thought that dome thing was for like GPS or Sirius. I'm hoping if that is it ,I can 'block' it so I can control my lights on the dash etc. I'll give it a try! Thank you so much!

*update. I tried covering that sensor thing with black electrical tape. It didn't work. :-(

Automatic dashboard lights are dangerous. Seeing your dashboard lit up makes you think you turned on your lights and if you can see your headlights on you are sure you turned on your lights. But guess what? You didn't. You have no taillights.
