Photocell?, mine DID light up, orange. Weird, maybe it has been changed, i do see a black photocell looking thing sticking out of the vent in the dash.

Ummm, for all i know it has a little light 2 so it can test/calibrate it self.. Did you remove the cluster or battery recently that could cause it to wanna re learn?

I think my out of the box technic is getting us somewhere.

Once i started calling it a check control light and ambient light sensor i did find some info..

I doubt its something else.. But what is in your dash vent? Pic? I will look in mine

I did change the battery when i bought the car a month ago.
At first i thought it was a check control light.

just because it is a light sensor does not mean it might not have a light also blink occasionally for some resin.
