I find the effectivness of my 02 Laguna varies depending mostly on differing lighting conditions.

I noticed a yellowish light shines out of the sensor and assume this must 'sense' rain on the glass.

As far as I am aware, it is (as previously mentioned) a feature to stop the wipers trying to activate when you start the car with frost on the screen leading to damaged wipers.

The Passat auto wipers can be left on all the time. They simply turn back 'on' when you go over 15mph. I guess the assumption is that if you are moving at more than 15mph, then they shouldn't still be frozen to the screen!

Why do today what you can put off until tomorrow...

Wanna see what I drive? No pics of the latest Passat, but you can see the Scenic II here and the CB1000R here!

Previous Passat here and Bandit here.
