Can't drive at night, with no headlight!

Hey guys I really did it this time. I removed the top dash piece from my '96 bird(the part that runs the length of the windshield and has the defroster ducts in it) and I believe that I have disrupted the automatic headlight sensor on the passenger side. At night I tried to turn on my headlamps and they were the only thing to not turn on. I have parking lamps and taillamps, but no headlamps. Is there any way to bypass this system? I really like to still be able to drive at night. Thanks in advance for any help.

Your fellow T-birder,

Do You Have the Autolamp Feature Active?

It sounds like you have the autolamp feature turned on. A way to 'bypass' this would be to turn the dimming dial downward (towards the floor). You should feel a click, like a switch was turned off. After that, you can control the lights by using the regular lighting dial to the left of the dimming dial. Otherwise, make sure the sensor wasn't damaged or disconnected.

See if that helps!
