When mine went out it was the switch that adjusts the sensitivity. Had the dealer replace it.

My Bonneville has a pullout headlight switch and the sensitivity control is at the base. You just turn it left or right. They replaced that entire assembly. My Park Ave has a different setup so yours is probably different. My point is that it may not be the twilight sentinel itself but the control however it is set up on your vehicle.
