Ok i've been wondering if the dome light has a sensor to detect when its dark? because when its day out, and I turn off the car, the dome stays off until I open the door (if u have the switch on the "door" setting).

At night, when I shut off the car, BEFORE I open any doors, the light comes on right away.

I tried turning off the headlights before I shutoff the car at night to see if that causes the dome to turn on at night before I open a door. Still turns on with the headlights off.

So my question is, how does the car know its dark out? If it has a sensor, where is it?
Just curious.

my light sensor is just above the passenger side wiper hard to see if you arent looking for it ...it id about a 1/4 inch long by 1/16 inch line that isnt tinted on the drivers side of the passenger side wiper the sensor is under that hop[efully that helps you....keep in mind i have a 06 zx3 so it might not be the same on yours
