Auto headlights no working

Okay, so I finally installed my trailer brake controller in the center console cubby. Got it all done and the controller works just fine. But now the automatic headlights aren't working. When I start up, nothing comes on even though it's dark. I can still turn them on manually, though. So, where's the sensor for light/dark? Or maybe a fuse issue? Any hints before I throw up my hands and bring it to the stealer? Thanks.

Re: Auto headlights no working

NEVERMIND!

I figured it had something to do with the wiring harnesses in the center bezel. So I went back out and popped the center bezel off and checked those contacts. Sure enough, the grey harness was not fully seated. I pushed it in and got a satisfying "click." Fired the engine and the headlights came to life. Phew!
