RAIN SENSOR

The rain sensor is mounted on the inside of the windshield, behind the rear-view mirror. The sensor is able to detect the presence and amount of water on the windshield, and automatically activates the windshield wipers accordingly.

NOTES

Static droplets may not be detected on initial start-up. A single wipe should be used to clear the windshield.

NOTES

The Wiper Rain Sensor can be enabled or disabled via the Vehicle settings menu. See INSTRUMENT PANEL MENU.

To activate the rain sensitive wipers, move the wash/wipe control to the AUTO position. The behavior of the system may be adjusted to the driver's preference by rotating the collar (2).

NOTES

If the wash/wipe control is turned to the AUTO position, the wipers do not operate if either of the front doors are open.

NOTES

In dry and often sunny conditions, optical influences and dirt accumulation on the windshield may result in the windshield wipers activating inadvertently. To prevent this, it is recommended that, under these conditions, the wash/wipe control is returned to the OFF position.
