Fears are emotions triggered by your subconscious mind in order to protect you from danger, as for Achluophobia as any phobia, it happen when the person experiences an emotional trauma associated with the feared situation. For example in case someone freighted him in a dark place when he was very young , this way he can develop Achluophobia.

Sorry i wasn't here when i asked the question, but i see you did the research your self, and you are right, trauma in a young age is usually the reason for the existence of any phobia not just Achluophobia .
