Before I start searching junk yards anybody have a twilight sentinel that goes on the dash? My headlights are staying on all the time.

Did you try amazon or a dealer. If I remember right there is a Cadillac one you can splice your pigtail onto that would fit the dash panel...

I searched the internet but I did not try the dealer yet. I read on here the part # is 914032 and it is discontinued.

I dimly recall someone on this board reporting on opening one of those up and replacing the photocell, but I can't find the post.

Certainly a possibility, how do you test for that?

Try searching for 00914032,

I would imagine you can use another GM light sensor if you can't get this part anymore.
