    Default Another ghost in the system turns out to actually be clever programming/safety feature!

    So I was going to post up a micro rant about VX's electrical system, but luckily engaged brain before posting.

    Alleged Problem: With your front wipers on at any speed, when you engage reverse gear, your rear wiper will start.

    Only occurred to me afterwards that..... that's quite handy and not a fault!

    In my defense (despite enjoying my own silliness) Its a tricky reverse to park my Vecy so I cut the tunes, air con/fan and if it's raining, the front wipers so I've got no distractions/noise while im doing it. As my rear windows are tinted I just use my side mirrors to look. It probably would have been more obvious if I was using the rear mirror that she was trying to help me out rather than 'go on the blink'
