Question Light sensor

Hi, Newbie here
Type S GT 2009 model. How does the auto light function work? My lights turn on with a mind of their own. Bright sunny day, lights come on, Dark, rainy day. lights do not come on. How are they supposed to work and where is the sensor.
Thanks in anticipation

Light sensor is in the windscreen behind the rear view mirror (same place as the auto wiper sensor). It's supposed to active when dusk but the hysteresis is not very good - this time of year mine goes on and off soooooooo much people think I'm flashing them
