Headlight Issues After Windshield Replacement?

I had my windshield replaced by Safelight. After the install, I noticed that the automatic lighting system is not working properly. The headlights are on during the day, unless I manually turn them off or switch to DRL. This did not occur before the windshield replacement. Any ideas?

Did they calibrate correctly? I'm fairly certain the front camera/sensors need calibration after replacement.

Actually maybe they weren't even plugged in correctly but just throwing it out there

The windshield indeed does need calibration. I took mine to the dealer and the windshield company came to the dealer to do the work. My SA made sure the windshield was calibrated correctly before I took the car back. If you have HUD, that needs calibration too.

Make sure that you got an OEM windshield too. I had mine replaced and had several issues until they finally replaced with with OEM.
