    Default Auto Wiper and Folding Mirrors - Please Help!

    Hi, just bought an Insignia and have been happily playing with it over the last week. The only two functions that don't seem to work are the automatic wipers and the folding mirrors. According to the manual, the folding mirrors should fold in when you hold down the button towards the O setting. This does nothing. Equally, the wipers should recognise the rain and I even have the toggle switch to adjust the sensitivity.

    I've read somewhere that these features may have been casualties of the transition from Opel to Vauxhall Insignia and these products were never added to the UK model (much like the camera). I can half believe there is no wiring in the mirror folds, but surely if the auto wipers were dropped they would have gotten rid of the large sensor panel on the windscreen behind the rear view mirror?

    These features aren't essential, but I'd like to know definitively if either are likely to work. Please can any other Vauxhall Insignia UK owners let me know if they have working models.

    Many thanks
    Dave

    Folding mirrors are only there if you have electric seats with memory which are standard on the Elite or have an option pack.

    Not sure about the auto wipers, the "camera" is for the auto headlights, the rain sensor is there somewhere too though.

    Just read your other post and I'm not sure if the SRi has / had the rain sensitive wipers.

    Hi, not sure about the memory. I do have electric height controls as well as electric lumber support.

    Sorry, I meant the 'roadsign camera' that is present on the opel models but was dropped because it misread UK roadsigns. Just seems strange to have the sensor and controls for auto wipers if they aren't available on my model.

    Cheers
    Dave

    If you've got the large sensor panel on the windscreen behind the mirror, I think you should have auto wipers. The stalk is the same as those without, as the scrolly wheel sets the intermittent time instead of the sensitivity. Std Auto lights doesn't have the panel, only if you upgrade to the high beam assist/tunnel detection add-on.

    You don't say which model of insignia you have, but auto wipers and folding mirrors were not std on the lower models, and may or may not have been available as options depending on exact year.

    Dealer should be able to tell if they are broken/never fitted by plugging in the computer.
