2007 auto headlights not working

I just purchased a used 2007 Grand Cherokee and the auto headlights are not working - I replaced the sun senor in the top center of the dash and still not working - what is my next step to resolve the problem.

Here is something stupid.. I did this last week..

Got a new parking pass and put it in my rear view. It blocks the sensor.

Nothing on the rear view mirror to block the sensor eye.

The auto headlight sensor should be in the center of the dash at the windshield. The sensor behind the rear-view mirror would be for the auto high-beams. Do you have the auto high beam box behind your rear view?

When you say they "aren't working" what are they doing? Always on or always off?

Mine are always on in my 2011 JKU but assumed it was part of some DRL programming.

Headlight switch? Common problem on other FCA brands that use the same switch. Cheap to replace.
