Is this a rain sensor ? as I haven't actually seen it in "action" yet.
Ambient light sensor, I think.
i thought that was rain sensor,
isn't the ambient sensor on the dash, passenger side?
The ambient light sensor is in the rev counter, I forgot to add in my initial post that I don't have auto lights or a cracked screen ! ( overhead telephone line).
When you say you have not seen it in action yet what do you expect to happen ?
Well if it is a rain sensor and it started to rain whilst driving, which I have, wouldn't it automatically start the wipers wiping the screen at preset speeds, which are dependant upon the intensity of rain ?
The wiper stalk needs to be in the correct position for auto wipers to engage. If not in the right position they won't start automatically
Correct position is one up from OFF (what you would otherwise think of as intermittent). As @kiddo says, this is the only position that uses the sensor.
Got it !
My thanks to both of you, Had the switch in the off position
