    I've seen something that looks like a sensor on the back of the rear view mirror (ie facing the windscreen) which I was thinking is the auto lights sensor. I could be wrong though.

      there is a sensor on cars with sight and light fitted usually on the windscreen behind the rear view mirror or as said on the back of the mirror. i would turn the car on leave the lights on auto and cover this sensor with your hand or something and see if the light come on usually the sensor on the windscreen is for the auto wipers but see how you get on

              Isn't it on top of the dash? I thought it was and the one on the windscreen is for the wipers?

                    no worries mate not harsh at all, when its light again tmorrow try switching the knob to 0 and then back auto and see if the lights go off in bright light if they dont then a trip to the stealers would be advised
