Default disabling/removing Auto headlights

i searched through the net how to disable the automatic headlights and the only thing that came up was tin foiling the sensor to trick it that its daytime.

any suggestions?

never mind figured it out. Easier than i thought
1. pop the plastic trim out in front of the window (surrounding the VIN # )
2. There are 2 sensors the one on the left flat looking one is the daylight sensor the other oval looking one no idea what it is
3. pretty much it needs a close circuit for the computer to think its day so what i did was just wrap metal tape around the pins of the sensor (kinda looks like a T10 light bulb socket), & inserted it back the plug.
4. no more stupid automatic lights, yay
