How to trick the Auto Headlights that its dark out?

I'm not sure if anybody has done this or not, but I like to have my headlights on whenever I'm driving. That means day and night. I'm trying to fool the auto headlight sensor in to thinking it's always dark out. My dad did this on his F250 with some dark tape over the little senor bubble on the dash. I removed my sensor and taped it really well, but my headlights still act as if I did nothing. Is there another sensor someplace that is essentially bypassing the dash sensor to keep the lights off? I have scrolled through the dash computer to see if there is an option for Daylight running lights, but i didn't see one.
Here are some pictures of the places that I think have extra sensors that could be causing the problem I'm having. There is one in the center of the dash, one spot on top of the center rear view, forward facing on the center rear view, or maybe the tinted bubble on the rear roof in the cargo/third row area?
