I think you have the opposite. 1 bar = low beams off during day with most light, so it's not as sensitive. 3 bar = very sensitive

At least that's how I interpreted it. Kinda like my Logitech G5 mouse. 1 bar = lease sensitive, so it's "slow," 3 bars = Very sensitive.

I also hate it when it's bright outside and the headlights turn on...but I read that the sensor also detects the amount of infrared given off by the sun...which kind of explains why it turns on more often in cooler seasons
