Default Auto headlight function won't work

Omg! Have you guys ever had this kind of problem??

I started car this morning and my head light starting to turn on...normal right.
But after sun comes up and I thought headlight would turn off. But no!!
It keep stays on and won't shut off... even in bright sunny day.

So I switch to turn off position and it still stays on!!!

I put into parking light position and still stay on!!

And if I put into manual on headlight position.... fog light comes on and headlight stays on.

Only way I can shut it off is put into off position and turn off the ignition.

I tried anything possible, but I think I might blow up the fuse or something....

I have aftermarket HID... and I hope that's not screwing things up....

And my car is out of warranty... I need help!!

SAM is doing itís own thing!
Another weird thing I noticed was SRS sign came on this morining but it went away after few min...
gosh... i hope it's not huge problem.....

OK check the headlamp mode on the cluster settings menu is set to Manual, then try setting the switch to Off and see if they respond, it could just be they are set to Auto and the sensor is dirty.

I wouldn't have thought the HID's would be causing this unless some very bad wiring has caused damage at some point, that SRS light is probably nothing to worry about since it reset so fast and it is not related to the headlights in any case.

Thanks for quick respond. Dan

we always appreciate your help.

It was acting really weird. Everything was failing and I got all kind of warning lights. Include check engine light.

But thank god. I found the cause.

It was the moisture that somehow got into fuse box. Cause I opened up the hood this morningÖ

and saw Fuse box cover was loosed... and later I found out that Iím missing one of the clips that suppose to hold the fuse box cover...

Gosh... I drove it for all day today and everything is okay now. I think engine bay heat vaporize the moisture.

Thanks again and last question.

Where can I get the fuse box cover clip?? Do I have to buy the cover itself?
