I also tried the Leaf Spy option, but I still am unable to get auto to function. I did purchase a rogue stalk and bought a maxima sensor (which may be an issue for me, not sure yet) and everything seems to function normally except the auto-on functionality. Carefully reading your posts it seems to indicate there was something else in addition to the LeafSpy pro enablement that you needed to do. Can you share your detailed steps beyond the hardware and Leafspy pro steps?

Your comment - But I did get the Auto Headlights feature to work with the help of Jim the "LeafSpy" guy. He helped me "activate" the option in my car with a little program and the ODBII bluetooth connector that I use with LeafSpy Pro.

What is this little program?
If you have LeafSpy Pro already, go to the support links and contact the creator of the app. He said he would incorporate the final Auto switch function in the next rev of the program. He may work it out with you to beta test the program with this feature.
Test version 0.40.105 now includes the ability to detect if Auto Headlights is not enabled and give you the option to enable. Of course you must have the necessary hardware installed for this to actually do anything. Don't know what happens if you enable but did not install the hardware. Maybe nothing or maybe you get a DTC.
I have tried (stupid me) to activate Auto Lights before installing hardware. Now, I have sensor and Combination Switch installed - but Auto Light is not working (headlights are always on). I'm not sure if this is hardware issue (doesn't seem that BCM is providing 5V to the sensor, I can measure only something low as 0.1 - 0.15 volts)
But to be sure that this is not related to BCM configuration - may I kindly ask you for your small apps that you used before for changing BCM settings outside of LeafSpy Pro (and yes - I have PRO bought on Play Market - I can prove if needed)

Stalk pn: 25560-3KA8E combination switch

Optical sensor pn: 28576-1HH0A

I'm going to try installing the combination switch and sensor to see if I can get auto headlights in my '15 S.

I have an independent mechanic who says his Nissan Consult works on a 2014. Anyone know if that will work on a 2015? I think the BCM needs to be programmed to turn on the auto headlights.

Don't even know it the wiring for the sensor is there. If not I'll wire it up to the BCM.

Let's have some fun.
Hi!

Do you remember, when you've started implementing this - did you have voltage on Sensor Power pin? what was the value? I have also 2015 S trim, however, I can measure only something small like 0.1 volts on Power pin on BCM socket. So, I'm unsure if power should be permanently there or only after BCM will be configured properly for Auto Lights feature.
