Suggested correction: The light could be motion activated. Either Kevin's movement or passing vehicles could have turned it on, regardless of the time of day. I have motion detector lights in my carport and they constantly go on and off in the daytime if it's low-light and cars pass by fast enough. People walking their dogs can also activate it if they are close enough. They sometimes stay on until I have to manually turn the power off, then on again.

That would explain it only if the light came on when Kevin "activated" it. It stays off during the first scene, and he doesn't make any motion towards the garage when the camera is on him. Nor do we see any vehicles or people pass behind him.

Suggested correction: The two frames are taken from different angles. Notice especially the tree to the right and the two cracks at the bottom. The second picture appears to be slightly closer and lower. The light simply wasn't visible in the first shot.

The two shots are from exactly the same camera position and angle. The screenshot someone provided might have the image cropped differently, but that doesn't mean the camera angle was different.

Die Hard 2 mistake picture

Continuity mistake: Bruce Willis is emerging from an underground air-vent when the plane with General Esperanza is landing.

But in the very next scene, the tire marks clearly show the front wheel passed to the right of the vent and so completely missed it. (01:11:40)
