After market auto switch for headlights

I have a new 2017 Winni View on a Sprinter chassis and I'm surprised and disappointed it doesn't come with automatic running headlights. After so many years of that feature being an automotive industry standard, I've grown used to it and I badly miss it on this MH. Does anyone know of an after market kit I can install ?

Are you referring to daytime running lights or auto turn on when it gets dark? Have you checked at a Sprinter van dealership? Perhaps its just a module that needs to be installed. The computer might have to flashed to activate it but they can do that too. In the mean time google might be your best friend.

Generic systems do exist:

But integrating something like that into the Sprinter may be a real chore. the standard headlight switch may send data to a controller to turn on the lights, a simple wiring add on may not work. Have you searched any of the Sprinter forums for information?

(I added the feature to my motorhome using junkyard modules from 90's Ford stuff where there were stand alone modules similar to the add on one above. Wasn't easy, but you are right, once you are used to the feature, turning on the lights manually seems dumb.)
