Exclamation Automatic Light Sensor

Hi.

i have a little trouble with my Photocell.

when i turn on the twilight sentinel with the Photocell installed the lights will never go on. (expect i turn them self on with the ****)

when i pull the Photocell out the lights are ever on as soon as i turn on the car or even the ignition and stay on for the time the twillight sentinel is turned... so this works fine.

Now, i think it'* the photocell itself, but how can i test if it works? I checked with a multimeter but even in the dark or in direct sunlight i read out 0 Ohm. Do i anything wrong or is this showing that it'* broken? If so, where could i get a new one? i found this nowhere..

And is it correct that the lights will stay off when it is broken? I thought i have to be the other way round, that they will stay on... like they do when i pull it out...

Any idea? You Guys know so much about that cars, so i hope you could help me...

Here in Germany at least there are driving just a few. maybe 10...but at least i only know 3 (including mine...) in whole Germany, so here'* no one who knows about the Bonneville...

And another thing:

In my other thread i told about my Check Monitor Problem. Maybe when this is gone i will change up to Xenon lights. Would this bring a failure back on the monitor or is this ok?

Thanks for looking and your awnsers.

Greetings from Germany

Manni

Hi

i changed the Sensor and the lights work as they should.

But the question about xenon lights is still in my mind.

And the check control is already lighting up everytime i turn on the lights.
