DRL's can be turned on from a dealership by programming the SJB for our cars (2005-9).
As far as true "automatic" lights goes(parking, headlamps, tail-lamps), no, you'd have to wire up something yourself, older models don't have this as an option, nor is there a sensor in place. The extra position the ordered switch for our 2005-9's will give you is for DRLs, and isn't actually necessary.
Should you have to have "automatic", there are options to choose from, but nothing factory or factory accessory wise: http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_...cted-545T.html
Essentially requiring a board with basic logic to read a light sensor you would mount, feeding relays.

Wyatt is one of the crew that was helping me out. I figured they were well known, but I like to call folks out for doing good, not just all the bad we hear about.
For those needing it, the part number for the switch is 9r3z-11654-ca (Motorcraft SW-6659).
To install, you just pull two screws from the lower dash cover and drop it down (3 snap in clips at the top edge), remove one screw from the lower tab of the headlight/info button panel (one sanp in clip at the top), pull the plug on the back of the headlight switch, compress 3 tension clips around the back of the switch and pull it out the front of the panel. Reverse to install. Everything worked right away, no tricks.
I went out tonight and was all giddy at my lights working all by themselves. I'm such a geek.
I just ordered the Motorcraft SW-6659 switch from Amazon for $23.
