It is most likely the sensor on your dash that isn't working. The little bubble looking thing. Sorry I forgot the technical term but it looks like you are up for a trip to the dealer if it isn't telling the headlights to turn on when it's dark.

The dealer may be able to adjust it or if that doesn't work they will replace it under warranty so either way you win.
