Ah. Bad headlight switch.
Just so we're clear on this: If you turn the ring counterclockwise on the switch (i.e. so it'* pointing to any marks on the scale other than the Off position), you hear a *click* from behind the dash when it'* dark out, and _all_ your exterior lights come on, then the Twilight Sentinel controller is fine.
If you pull the **** out and your lights do _not_ go on, you have a bad headlight switch. You've pretty much proven that now. The Twilight Sentinel controller is a separate box inside the dash; although it'* controlled by the ring on your headlight switch, it is not _in_ your headlight switch. (Make sure you get the correct replacement headlight switch, though; you'll need a replacement that includes that TS ring...)
Instructions on how to replace the headlight switch are in TechInfo.
