SOURCE: S-10 Wipers Don't Work in the rain

My 98 suburban did the same thing (has intermittent wipers I assume) I had to replace the wiper motor. AutoZone had a rebuilt one for $50. ($279 at dealer for a new one)

Either the replacement sensor the windscreen technician should have fitted isnt connected properly to the glass or it has developed an intermittant fault - quite common with Renaults especially megane scenics and grand scenics....

SOURCE: Wipers work fine until it rains then intermitient setting stops

This appears to be wear and tear of the Interval Timer Relay, for the Intermittent wipe cycle.

SOURCE: when it rains or moisture in the air my truck want to shut off

Take the distributer cap off and spray the inside of the cap with wd-40 and wipe clean. If that doesn't work replace the cap. If that doesn't work replace the spark plug wires.

Some aftermarket windshields will not work with the rain sensors. You may need to go back and have factory Porsche glass installed.

The windshield wipers on my 1994 S 300 mercedes diesel work intermittently then quit and start up again seems like they are ready to crash for good. how do i repair so they work when needed?


1) It is normal for the wipers, in rain sensor mode, to cycle once upon startup.

2) In rain sensor mode, the wipers should be intermittent with the cycles increasing as the volume of moisture increases on the windshield. The speed will increase until it reaches the continuous slow speed of position 2 on the switch. It will not increase to the fastest speed which is position 3 on the switch. You have to go to the fastest speed by manually rotating the switch to postion 3. Doesn't seem like a design flaw to me.

VW GOLF MK3 GTI 8v starting problems


My mk3 1996 16v 2ltr was playing up, wouldnt start when cold, wouldnt rev above 4500-5000. I changed the ignition switch, ecu relay, petrol pump relay, plugs,plug leads, coil, and finally, checked the hall sender on the dizzy, and found a broken wire in the dizzy body. Got a 2nd hand dizzy from a breakers for 40 quid, (150 or more new) and all is well. (I actually took the car to two garages and they couldnt find the problems, no faults registered on vagcom).

2004 Jeep rain sensing wipers continue to run regardless of setting or amount of rain


a couple of thoughts:
Has your windshield just been replaced?
The sensor is up by the rear view mirror, is it plugged in all the way?
Do you have the right size wiper blades on your vehicle? (too short of a blade misses the rain sensor and does not wipe it clean)
How good are your blades? ( as above, to turn off the rain sensor the blade needs to wipe it clean)
The rain sensor works by projecting multiple inferred beams to the inside of the windshield, like a prism, they reflect back to collectors. when there is a water droplet on the outside of the windshield it changes a beams trajectory and it misses the collector thust turning on the wipers.
(yes, this all happens in that little sensor up by the rear view mirror.)
check to make sure the wiper switch is in the right position.
also....I've seen rain sensors not work properly when the hood or doors are open.
hope this helps

Repair the rain sensing equipment for 2005 Jeep GC


If this was a motor issue then it would not work at all...so one thing to do is to check the sensor reading using a meter and see if you get a resistance reading from it..Now sensors are not easy or practically impossible to fix so you may need to replace only`the sensors for this.
