Auto-wiper control

When the wiper lever is in the
position, the rain sensor senses the amount of rainfall on the windshield and turns the wipers on or off automatically (off— intermittent—low speed—high speed).

The sensitivity of the rain sensor can be adjusted by turning the switch on the wiper lever.

From the center position (normal), rotate the switch downward for higher sensitivity (faster response) or rotate it upward for less sensitivity (slower response).

CAUTION
  • Do not shade the rain sensor by adhering a sticker or a label on the windshield. Otherwise the rain sensor will not operate correctly.


  • When the wiper lever is in the
    position and the ignition is switched ON, the wipers may move automatically in the following cases:
  • If the windshield above the rain sensor is touched or wiped with a cloth.
  • If the windshield is struck with a hand or other object from either outside or inside the vehicle.
  • Keep hands and scrapers clear of the windshield when the wiper lever is in the position and the
    ignition is switched ON as fi ngers could be pinched or the wipers and wiper blades damaged when the wipers activate automatically.
  • If you are going to clean the windshield, be sure the wipers are turned off completely (when it is most likely that the engine is left running) this is particularly important when clearing ice and snow.
