    Is there a way to turn off the automatic light sensor in the front of the dash? I have a '99 Z71 LS. Do you know if the newer models '02-'06 light switches with the on/off toggle are compatible with the previous models?

    There should be a way. As far back as the early 80's there have been automatic light sensors made by GM ... they weren't as good as they are now, but even back then they could be toggled on/off.

    Anyone know about the 99?

    does the 99 not turn off by clicking the dome override 4 times like the 200 does

    Yeah, that's how my 2002 works. I click 4 times and the lights go on/off.

    Look on 2-51, it talks about the "Automatic headlamp system"

    I didn't see anything, but they have a way to turn off the chime, so maybe they have a way to turn off the lights???

    Lamps On Reminder
    A reminder chime will sound when your headlamps or
    parking lamps are manually turned on and your ignition
    is in OFF, LOCK or ACCESSORY. To disable the
    chime, rotate the thumbwheel all the way down. In the
    automatic mode, the headlamps turn off once the
    ignition key is in OFF.Lamps On Reminder

    Lots of button pressing with no luck...Well I guess the technology in the first year of that generation Silvy got screwed with the option to turn the auto-lights on/off. I am going to swap out the toggle switch from my buddies avalanche to see if that will work if not I will live with it. I will post the results.
