Aren't they controlled by a small sun sensor in the middle front of your dashboard?
Anything such as a dash cover blocking it?
Or is it just flaking out?
Is cheap, not that hard to replace if the little button shaped thing on the dash.
If you shine a light on it thru the windshield that should turn the headlights off... but so should pretty much any ambient lighting.
Bummer, don't know how to test the sensor, but I'd suspect if you use a voltmeter across it you could see something---but the sensor is cheaper than a meter if you don't already own one.
