Auto headlight nor Rain Sensing Wiper working!

My 05 WK automatic lights do not work. And i dont think the rain sense works either since the wipers run when there is NO water at all on the windshield. anyone has had similar situation before? Just to add, the windshield is original.

Most likely it needs to be recalibrated at the dealer

Re: Auto headlight nor Rain Sensing Wiper working!

Just to rule out the obvious first:

Both settings are selected correctly?

- Auto-headlights selected on the stalk.
- Wipers set to 'rain sense' on the EVIC.


...not to suggest that you wouldn't have checked these already, but the number of times my wife has said they weren't working for me to find out they were simply turned off...

Hate my auto wipers. Id get random phantom wipes here and there w no rain. Lol. They do work great when it's raining though

I turned my auto headlights off too due to HIDs. They'll make em wear out quicker. But it is a fantastic feature so I may go back! Lol

Yes, the settings are correctly set. Thx for pointing it out though.
