Light switch

Can i remove the switch i have now and put one with the auto setting. I tend to leave my lights on a lot for some reason and would like the auto setting so they can turn off themselves.

New Toy 97 dodge 2500 4x4 12 valve 4in turbo back exhaust and stock plate FF for now.
Mods to come in the near future

All the "auto" setting does is turn the lights on when it's dark; it has nothing to do w/turning them off. There's a little more to the auto-lights than the switch--there's a photocell sensor on the top of the dash and the associated wiring for it, plus possibly some programming in the GEM to turn on the auto-lights.
