Default 95 Sse Bonneville twilight sentinal

A friend just bought one. It'* had a piece of paper put over the twilight sentinel sensor on the dash (with the blue dot in the middle). I just saw the car in daylight and noted that the twilight sentinal is turned off on the rotating **** on the dash.

What reason might someone have had for covering it up?

The car doesn't look like it has auto air with a digital readout but there'* a 3/4inch bubble on the middle of the dash that'* like the sun sensors on my LeSabre. Why is that there if there'* no automatic air?

And turns them on automatically when it gets dark enough. Remove the paper and keep an eye on the system for anything odd.

ok lets get this straight....

the twillight sensor is on the left hand side of the car...NOT the middle of the dash

you can turn off the twillight by the secondary **** on the headlight switch...turn it all the way to the top to shut it off

the middle of the dash is the infread sun sensor for the ECC

the SSE almost 100% will have the ECC, to that is what the sensor is for...IF it does not, the sensor is not under the 'bubble' they made all the trim panels the same...the sensor is under the trip panel

Pat, I think he knows all that. He mentioned the difference in the sensors and the ****.
