The automatic wipers need to be activated, the wiper stalk has the following positions (from highest position downwards) Off, Automatic function on, Intermittent, Slow constant, Fast constant. Every time the car is started, the automatic function disengages (I think its in case the screen may be frozen, or simply dry), but it will activate once in position. The headlights will go on in poor light, and I haven't found a way of over-riding them as yet (someone may know), but since its not important to me, I just live with it.

I know the rain sensor is mounted on the screen, but I thought the light sensor was on the dashboard itself...


This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
