Just to clarify terminology, Battery Saver and Auto Headlights are not the same features.
Battery Saver turns off lights of any kind that have been left on for longer than 8 or 9 minutes, unless the car is running, of course. This feature is standard in all Chrysler/Jeep vehicles.
When the rotary switch on the instrument panel is turned to "AUTO," the Auto Headlights feature turns the headlights on at dusk, as well as when the windshield wipers are activated. It also keeps the headlights from coming on during the day. The feature was NOT standard on 2014 Sport and Latitude models, but was included in an option package if ordered. If your control switch doesn't have the "AUTO" setting on the far right, you don't have Auto Headlights. I understand this feature was made standard on 2015s and newer.
I had hoped to upgrade to Auto Headlights and bought a new control switch and sun sensor. When I took apart the instrument panel, I found no unused plug for the sunlight sensor, so I'm discouraged at the moment. But I'm going to talk with my dealer's parts manager and find out if there's a secret. I'll report what I learn.
