Default exterior lights will not shut off

my twilight sentiniel is not working or something... i have it off, and my lighs stay on for 10+ minutes everytime.. no matter if the keys are in the ignition, even turned to acc, or even no keys

do i need to get a new switch or a new light sensor?

Default

the twilight sentinal and the headlamp switch aren't the same thing. Either the headlamp switch is switched to "on" or the switch is bad itself. The exterior lights turn off after 10 minutes of the ignition being turned off, just like the interior lights to save the battery.
