I wish all vehicles had auto headlights!!
A friends CRV doesn't but it does have DRL's, we take turns on our morning commute. TWICE since Nov 1 I've had to remind him to turn ON his headlights... this is AFTER he's driven 7 miles to my house

But it would be nice if Ford just included it with the chassis
I am sure FORD would if FR would pay for it !!!
There a lot of things missing on the E450 MH that I am sure comes with a standard FORD van !!! I am surprised that our 2013 Sunseeker is the only FORD he own that has no computer chip in the key ???
Even my old 03 F150 has a chip in the key !!!

My daughter's 2010 Honda doesn't have automatic headlights(does have DRL) and she has a little post it note above her headlight switch to remind her to turn them off. All of vehicles for the past 10 yrs or more have had automatic headlights, and going back to a manual switch is tough to remember.

I think the car dealers should offer voice command vehicles.
CAR OFF will shut off engine, turn windshield wipers off, turn headlights off as well as the radio and will automatically lock the car. If you leave the keys in the ignition it will say "Stupid you left the keys in the ignition"

I am sorry to inform you, BUT this is what you get when you do not "order" the coach as all companies order the cheapest frame with "no" bells or whistles on it to keep the price down.
Now will I agree it does not take much you are correct, but even not a new switch just the light sensor, but to get this from the factory will up the price big time as it will only come with a upgraded package from ford!
SO sorry this is what we all get by buying from the lot!

I always believed that when you shout your car/truck down,,, you turned every thing off,,, so when you restarted only the starter drew juice from the battery,,, maybe that is from growing up in Northern Midwest ??? And no Garage !!!
But know with Remote Start,,, I have learned to leave the Heater On !!!
Remote Start is a Great thing here in the White Midwest !!!
