outside motion sensor light not working

Our, about fifteen year old, outside motion sensor security light abruptly stopped working. It stays on all the time unless I climb the step ladder and switch it off.

I've fiddled with the dials for boost range, dusk to dawn, test, minute settings. etc. to no avail.

Do these things just go bad?

Is it time to replace it?

Yes they can go bad.

Sounds like you have tried everything so I would replace it.
