Intermitten Auto Headlights

My auto headlights don't come on anymore. This has degraded from every once and a while to almost never. Help!

    All of the running lights come on and the dash lights dim along the same timeline they always have. Is there a separate sensor or relay just for the headlights?

Sounds like the auto lamp sensor or the headlamp control module is failing. The auto lamp sensor is used on cars with automatic headlights. Both components have circuit boards that act like relays.
You'll need a wiring diagram to troubleshoot the circuits.
