Oh really? Wow. That is good to know.
I wish the JK was like my Land Cruiser. Lights turn off with ingition regardless. But if you want to turn the lights back on with the key out, you'll need the flip the lights off and on again.

Not a fan of auto-headlights, so I never use them. I do turn on my running lights quite often.
I think DRL's are more important that auto-headlights. But I guess if you have DRL's you may forget to turn your lights all the way on?
One day I will get a Procal just to turn on DRL's.

And yea, there are people who do indeed accidentally leave a light on in their homes, when they leave.

|Scott2373||The whole idea of adding them after the fact seems really ridiculous to me. If you forget to turn your headlights on when it's dark, do you forget to put pants on in the morning? Do you forget to flip the lights on and wonder why you can't see when entering a dark room in your house? The amount of work it would take to install the necessary equipment is about 10,000 times greater than simply turning your lights on manually over the entire course of ownership of the vehicle. I understand luxury, but sometimes it's spelled "lazy".|

|mikekeeper||You've all seen the people driving in the dark without headlights or in other low-light conditions such as heavy snow. Same reason lights come on when wipers are on - becoming the law in several states.|
|03-21-2014 04:19 PM|
|grizzstang||I don't see the appeal. Our Jeep has them and the girlfriend must have them on auto all the time. My truck does not have auto lights and I could care-a-less.|

|Jakesdad||For what it's worth..,I think auto headlights are one of those things that seem great if you don't have them, but if you do you realize how un-necessary they are. I find myself using them occasionally but it's usually by accidentally turning the switch to the wrong notch. One thing I ALWAYS do is check to make sure they are NOT on auto when I'm on an unlit dark road at night, in a rain storm, or any other time that I cannot afford to have my lights go out even for a second. I don't trust my life to that sensor at all, and is where auto headlights become kind of a hassle for me. I sure wouldn't mod my vehicle for that.|
|03-18-2014 11:15 AM|
I have a related question, is there a way to make the headlights and dog lights turn off with the vehicle and then turn back on when restarted?
I always had my headlights on in my Kia cause I never needed to turn them off cause they turned off with the car. I prefer to always have mine on also.
|03-18-2014 10:09 AM|
Does anyone have a knowledgeable dealer they could confirm with?
|03-16-2014 11:46 PM|
|SoCalRubicon||Never needed auto headlights, I drive with my headlights on all the time, day or night. It's the first thing I do after starting the vehicle - turn the headlights on.|
|03-16-2014 10:03 PM|
|dansb||Well crap found more posts from that guy and it did not function properly when installed, stayed on all the time. Chatter is that the dealer has to add sales code LMG to the jeep to make it function; but no one has gotten to that point yet.|

Pinout information for this and auto temp from various threads. In theory no wiring is needed to add just the auto headlights; just for the auto temp controls. Thought I would post it up though while I had it in front of me.

1 auto headlamps signal (22awg WT/VT)
2 sun sensor 1 signal (22awg VT/LB)
3 sun sensor 2 signal (22awg VT/OR)
4 sensor ground (22awg DB/DG)
In-car temp sensor (4 pin):
1 blend door feedback signal (22awg LB/BR)
2 sensor ground (22awg DB/DG)
3 fused run relay output (22awg PK/YL)
4 ground (22awg BK)
Evap temp sensor (2 pin)
1 sensor ground (22awg DB/DG)
2 eva signal (22awg DB/LG)

1 blower control (18awg DB/LB)
2 (except start stop system) fused b(+) (i.o.d.) (20awg RD)

7 sensor ground (22awg DB/DG)
8 evaporator temperature sensor signal (22awg DB/LG)

More searching and I dug this up. Some great info.
Installing ATC & Auto Headlights but need a bit of help...
So the wiring for the auto headlights is indeed there. But not the auto temp controls. Looks like the sensor w/ the auto temp controls just add additional outputs over the one without, so that sensor will work regardless if you intend to do auto temp or not.
Was going to post the pinouts but getting conflicting information. Will post that up with more searching.

|Jeffola||I will get my hands on the parts and advise., thanks|
|03-16-2014 08:21 PM|
w/ auto temp control 55111275AA
w/o auto temp control 55111276AA
Other places show the 5111275AA superseded by 68230114AA, and no second option for w/o the auto temp control. So maybe that got superseded also... not sure.
Turn signal switch w/ auto headlights (and fog)
Just taking a guess here but if the wiring is there it should be plug and play.

|Scott2373||I thought I read somewhere on this forum that all you need to do is install a relay in a certain spot, then disco the battery for 30 minutes to reset the Canbus and next time you start, you'll have DRL's...I'm with the "hater" crowd. I do not like them because it makes people lazy and they then forget all about turning the headlights on at night, so as a result, they're driving around with dim headlights and NO taillights...|

|jp2611||My wife's Camry had them and had "issues"..our '12 Sport does not have them, our '13 300 has them and they seem fine on it...but it also has a funky looking day time light anyway. Our '14 JKU Polar has them but I don't think the wife uses them I rarely drive that Jeep maybe a couple 3 miles a week...I prefer my TJ.....|

|Jeffola||I had my dash apart, I see the sun sensor wiring is in place, I would imagine its just a matter of plug and play, the switch and sensor are reasonable, will programming need to be done?|

|09-27-2012 08:52 AM|
That's good information. Is this all that's required to add them to a Sport?
Do you know if the wiring harness is already in place? Where does the sensor go?
|09-26-2012 02:08 PM|
My PW came with auto-dim mirrors, auto headlights, power seat ----- all things I'd rather not have.
At least the Chrysler electronics have proven themselves unreliable. I got that going for me.
|09-26-2012 12:41 PM|
Found some parts. For the ones with auto headlights. Do you also have fog lights ?
