I don't think there is an adjustment, and if there is, you can bet your life you'll need the dealer diagnostic computer to do it.

These things do seem to have a mind of their own. Normally they work reasonably effectively, but I've had mine stay on for ages after returning to daylight. I once stopped at traffic lights under a railway bridge, and the lights came on (as expected.) They didn't go off again until about 15 minutes later, despite it being a bright, sunny day.

Hi There

I've a Clio with auto headlights so i guess the principle is the same. you can't adjust it but you can programme them off. At least that is what it says in my handbook.
So here goes...

'To deactivate or reactivate the auto function, move the stalk (the bit nearest the steering column) twice consecutively from 0 to side light position, with the engine stopped and the ignition on. A bleep confirms the deactivation of this function, and two bleeps confirm it's reactivation'

Good luck!

It may be that the sensor area needs cleaning.

When the sun is low in the sky, i.e early morning or early evening - then whilst it may be sunny, because the angle of the sun is too low there isn't as much light falling on the windscreen sensor as you might think.Hence the lights either come on or stay on.
Our old Pug 206 was particularly troublesome in the twilight hours /winter when the sun was low in the sky.
The only time our lights seem to take longer to switch off is in these type of conditions.

Or as Chris has said - make sure the sensor area is clean.
