Could be an Instrument cluster failure. It's a common problem in 1990 Rivieras. I suggest you take it to an auto mechanic that specializes in electronics.

Where do I find the light sensor on a 1995 buick riviera

Look on the dash. I believe it's on the passenger side over the glove compartment.
It's easy enought to test. Turn lights to automatic and cover it up. It's time delayed to prevent the
lights from coming on if driving under a bridge.

Light sensor

The light sensor is in the dash board top about 2/3rds of the way over toward the passenger side. You will see 3 or 4 small slits, and that is where it picks up the light, or absense of light. Is the twilight control switch, located under the main light switch, in the position to turn the lights on automatically? It is a slide type switch, and must be slid over to the right for the automatic control to work.
