Automatic headlights dash sensor

2012 GC 5.7 Limited 109600 miles

With switch in A position the headlights sometimes come on sometimes not, so thinking it's the redish in color dash sensor. When the lights don't come, I tried covering the sensor, no change. Have to change the main switch to headlights ON position.

Found two parts from Moparonline both #7 which do you guys think is correct, same part number (weird) different descriptions for both

68230113AA sentinel sensor Grand Cherokee, thinking it's this one



Anyone change this sensor out? Job, easy / hard, what tools are needed to pop up the trim piece the sensor is in?

If you had a dealer replace it, what did it cost?

No warranty left in the car

Re: Automatic headlights dash sensor

I don't know about the part number but it's really easy to change out. You need to pry out the long piece/cover on top of the dash, there will be a harness you need to disconnect from the sensor.
