Automatic headlights wont come on if the car is started with the swith in auto, and the car under bright lights, such as at a gas station or in front of a store at night. Like the light sensor is saturated and when you get to the road the sensor still thinks it's daylight.
Exactly as reported in reported by ramsrn1.
