Default automatic lights in bonnevilles?

I have a 93 bonneville, and i was just thinking, "this cars got everything, except the automatic head lights" Is there a way to allow bonnevilles to have automatic head lights, or DRL, or whatever makes the lights turn on by themselves at night? I dont really care if it'* possible, just be a neat thing to do when i'm bored one day

Ever Bonneville 87+ in Canada has them.
My 91 has them, as does my 97.

Don't know how you'd go about hooking them up though.

Twilight sentinel and DRL are two totally different options. Which do you want?

the 93 sse that i have has every option available. I never just let the car sit there at night waiting for the lights to come on, but thats what I want. I want the lights to turn on automatically when the car is turned on at night. But I was thinking that the car has it, but I dunno. Thats why i'm here

If your 93SSE has every option available, you have it. Follow Drifter'* clue. It'* the time delay for the lights to turn off automatically. If it'* selected to minumum (or off), your twilight sentinel will be disabled.
