Automatic Headlights Turns on Too Early

Just traded my 2012 srt for a 2014 srt, one thing I notice is that the automatic headlights turn on whenever there isn't any direct sunlight on windshield. It could be in the afternoon and I am facing away from the sun and lights turn on. Is this because I got my windows tinted. But my 2012 was tinted same way and no problems. Just annoying because uconnect screen turns to night during the day and I can't see anything because its dimmed for night settings. Tired of turning off lights manually since I want the auto lights to turn on appropriately.

I believe you can choose to have the nav map set to day only in the unconnect settings. This will keep the nav map showing daytime all the time. As far as the dash and screen dimming when the lights come on, you can roll the dash light dimmer knob on the left up until it clicks once (one click below turning on the interior lights). This will keep everything illuminated even if the lights come on.

I use this so I can drive with my parking lights on during the day (I like the look of having the DRLs and the headlight LED accents on at the same time without the headlights). By the way, any word on a bypass or fix to allow us to run both DRLs and accents without having to use the parking lights?

Hope this helps
