    Default Rain Wipers !!!

    My 54 GSI has rain wipers fitted, or so I thought, it has a self dimming mirror, and that little yellow light on the underside of the mirror, and on the screen is a Purple shape, which I think is the Rain Sensor?

    The problem is when you set the wipers to the 1st setting, they act Exactly like intermittent, on the Fastest setting they wipe 11 times every 30 seconds if its Peeing it down or if its BRIGHT sunshine!!

    Any thoughts?

    You're sensor is directly behind the rear view mirror-lick your finger and wipe it over or if you've got a long tongue have a go from the pavement!!! Sounds to me that all you have is a variable speed wiper not rain sensitive in which case it'll continually do it a the set speeds.If rain sensitive when it's piissgn it down they'll continually work!

    How much for a new sensor? And are they easy to fit?
