Was well after dark both times. I suppose parking-lot lighting could have been different though. First was out back in the Target parking lot. Dome light stayed off. Later was in the Culver's parking lot, where the dome light did light up. Was the Culver's parking lot not as well lit as Target's? Possibly. I would need to go back and look to be sure.
Is there really an ambient light sensor trying to second-guess the dome light? I don't recall reading about that in the manual. Kind of a silly thing, imho. I'd rather have the predictability.
