Does your car have a twilight sensor which automatically brings the lights on in reduced light conditions.

I also have this problem with my '04 Modus. Just started this evening. This model does have an ambient light sensor which will switch on/off the lights, but it's never been problematic up until now.

I've tried every switch/toggle/ignition/door open/closed permutation I can think of and they still won't go off.

Rear lights are off.

Please, anyone have any ideas?
