I hadn't tried the original module with the newly attached prism because I thought both modules were functioning similarly since they displayed the same behaviour. The car is so quiet with the windows closed that setting 1 is fine. This adaptation takes place at initialization. If the wiring is the same, and the mirror fits, why does it not auto dim in the new car? Sadly, I no longer own the e46 anymore. I'm just looking to pull the fuse if it works as described in other places and wire the circuit to an inline fuse and a toggle switch so I can turn off the auto wipers and use regular intermittent, but then switch back on that circuit in appropriate conditions.
This mode allows you to adjust the speed-sensitive volume control. Just press the computer toggle button at the end of the turn signal lever. In the case of heavy rain, intermittent operation shifts into the continuous wiping mode. My car has a rectangular thing where the mirror contacts the windshield guess it's glued there? For me there is no adjustment that is low enough to find it acceptable, so I do what the other poster mentioned, I use manual wipe when I need it or position 1 and 2 for heavy rain. Man the rain sensor is driving me absolutely crazy, I read somewhere that pulling 15 fuse will kill it and revert the wipers to intermittent mode. The computer read-out lights up with the odometer reading.
Yeah its the right one, I checked it personally before he fitted it. My understanding is that if you have the rain sensor, you do not have an intermittent speed setting. Let the switches air dry. You can also enable automatic window closing when the car senses rain when it is locked. Reason this came up, I'm getting the windshield replaced tomorrow and the guy wanted to know if I have a sensor or not. Both continued to malfunction, and not wanting to subject the car to another replacement windscreen, I decided to leave it alone.
The other semi-useful test mode will tell you the signal strength of any given station from 0 to 15 highest. Rain sensing wipers have been a fairly recent development on vehicles. This way no one accidentally drives into your car. Check the signal wire for voltage with the test light. You can remove them and there is a little hole in each one that accepts the Roof Rack.
The other two wires on the module will be a ground wire and a signal wire. Reason this came up, I'm getting the windshield replaced tomorrow and the guy wanted to know if I have a sensor or not. I did not receive a deactivation notification. This capability is probably used in the automatic tuning function in the radio.

If the windshield is completely dry and clean, the infrared light is fully reflected to the receiver diodes.
I think it's just a case of engineers not having perfected the technology. It could have been 15. The symptoms don't make me think that the new windscreen is to blame, but the module worked fine before it was installed, so I'm a bit stumped. Rain sensors are required by law in some areas, so it is a good idea to check with your contractor or local water authority before having an irrigation system installed. If it sags, it will cause misalignment with the infrared beam and give false information. Here is the connection info: Host Port Channel irc.
Just curious, what do you have the sensitivity set to on the rain sensor? I've found that most of the trouble occurs when wiper blades don't make a clean sweep of the water off the windshield and the sensor can't tell the drops are gone and they wipe too often. When the rain sensor is activated, visual feedback is given to the driver in that one wiping cycle is executed first. Is that a dummy piece of plastic? Decrease the value on the Water Adjustment scale 1-10 scale, default setting is 5. I too disliked the rain sensor wipers, due to it being inconsistent. Hey all, I've just had my windscreen replaced due to minor accident.
They send no specific signal unless they are wireless and then only send a basic signal to disconnect. It will then show the serial number of the unit. The system says that the sensor is activated after it boots up. From what I read, it's supposed to be a feature to for people to see your car when it's parked at night in those really tight streets in Europe. Its very switch like in behavior. Yes, you do; you just need to activate it.
