Auto Headlight switch

Do any of the 2008-2011 focuses have an auto headlight setting on the switch?

Mine is loaded and does not have it, so I am assuming not.

But I figured I would ask, I get tired of turning them on where my moms fusion has the setting and she never needs to touch them.

Canada require daytime running lights which are not the same as auto-headlamps

You can buy and install a DRL unit, but all it does it run your headlights all the time at reduced power.

Ford did not include auto headlamps on the 08-11 Focus. I don't even know about the 12+ I think its just an option on some of their higher end cars.

Lame, I love auto switches.
There are nights I come home, get to the garage and look back like shit, are those going to go off? And I stand there and wait lol

The one thing I have been curious about is the cutout on the front part of the dash. It looks like a sensor for auto lights or a antenna for gps would go there?

I was looking at the Rain Tracker auto wiper kit, as a bonus it can work as a stand alone headlight control. http://www.raintracker.com/index.php

My buddy got an auto dimming mirror with auto light controls from an old Explorer, IDK if he ever got around to wiring it up yet.
