My dimmed headlights will not automatically switch off when entering daylight for the first time in the morning. The vehicle has an automatic switch off facility (eye) when entering full light conditions

It should tell you in owners h/book . No idea on that car but on some cars the switch is on the end of one of the the stalks and pushed in to set on/off . Could also be faulty sensor or possibly switch .

many thanks. The problem is resolved. Your suggestion to check the switch at the end of the stalks paid off. Many thanks.
