    Can you disable headlights from turning on automat

    I heard there is a sensor that senses when it gets dark out, and puts the headlights on automatically. I want to know if there's a way to disconnect the switch or sensor. I like being in control of my lights, and don't like how as soon as you drop the e-brake the lights come on. If there is no way to bypass this, if not, it's fine... But has anyone out there figured out to bypass this? Thanks...

    Change out the sensor in the dash with a 10k ohm resistor.

    Others have used a wire, but I measured it with a meter.

    That's it? That sounds simple enough. Is there maybe a picture I can find floating on the web? I don't want to mess it up.

    Just E-brake it 1 click up before you turn the key on, but then you have to deal with the light on the dash
