I have a 2003 2.2 LS.
Since the day I bought the car in 2007 the rain sensing wipers seem to have
had a mind of their own. When its only spitting they may work for a bit
then go onto max. speed when there is no need and stay on this for maybe
a minute and then perhaps stop altogether for a minute. This may repeat time
and again. Somtimes then when it rains heavier they dont seem to go as
frequent as they should.
Is this normal ? Does everyone else have them working like this ?
It doesnt seem to matter if i have the sensor set to the left, middle or right.
The full speed mode when its only spitting has reduced me to not using
the rain sensing mode at all. I just push the stalk down for a single swipe now
or put on standard if rain is heavier but it's doing my head in.
I wonder if perhaps the sensor is faulty and needs replacing ? Obviously I dont want to have the cost of replacing this if this is the way this rain sensor works for everyone and it will make no difference.
Any advice and other experiences would be most welcome, Cheers
