Question motion sensor not working

I just bought a house with a motion sensor flood light outside. The previous owner told me the lights might be burned out, so I changed both bulbs, but still no lights. I have the switch on inside the house, and on the two switches on the sensor, I have the sensitivity set to "min" and the time set to "5". It's a Heath-Zenith light.
Any ideas on what I should check next?

Set the sensitivity higher to detect anything. Generally, these lights turn on immediately when the power is off then restored.

Some of these lights have a test setting on the fixture itself that you might try.

Check for voltage at the wiring to the fixture.
