Hi People

So I have had my BMAX for over a year, and still having problems with the rain sensor. It only seems to work when I move the dial.

I have the lights set to Auto, as was told this would control the sensor. Not sure if this was correct.

I was on the motorway yesterday and started to rain, again the sensor never seemed to detect this. I ended up with the wipers on all the time.

Hope someone can advise

Thanks

My auto wipers work, but max sensitivity is never quite enough. In fact the sensitivity switch seems to make no difference at all. I got fed up with them and eventually ended up turning them off.

Is there anything on the outside of the window partially blocking the sensor, dirt, road film etc etc ?
I know that the Nissan Note was notorious for the same issue, you had to have a spotlessly clean screen for it to work correctly.

Hi All

I am sorry, i never replied to you..... I was looking out for mails to tell me someone had replied however they went to the Junk folder.

So I removed the plastic cover only to think the GPRS Rec was the Rain Sensor.

I then removed the next plastic cover, and to my surprise the sensor popped out.

This was not sitting correct, so i cleaned and well its now working....

I was going down the road happy and smiling the auto is working...

Again sorry for not replying


Though hope somone can advise on the armrest now...

Stay safe people
