    My auto headlights do not function, manually they do, do I need a LAMP CONTROL MODULE, or a HEADLIGHT SENSOR? Or both? Can anyone inform me where these two parts are located? Is dashboard removal needed to access these two modules? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    Well, according to the workshop manual...

    Symptom Chart
    -The Autolamps are Inoperative
    Condition Possible Sources Action
    -Circuitry.
    -Light sensor amplifier.
    -Headlamp switch.
    -SCIL module.

    The SCIL Module is right behind the glove compartment next to the blower motor. Remove the flap under the glove compartment to allow the door to fully swing down when you depress the inner tabs that releases the glove compartment door.

    Check out the picture & thread for an FYI

    I've also attached 2 PDFs(one on accessing the lamp switch & the other on Autolamp diagnostics) incase they help.
