Rain Sensor / Headlight Unit
 
1 Attachment(s)
I recently got a 2007 model WK and could not get the rain sensing wipers or the auto headlights working. After investigating a bit I found that the actual module behind the rear view mirror is not there ! :mad:

I got a quote from Jeep :
$97.5 for the unit
$150 for fitting and configuration

That seems a bit harsh to me. If I bought the module myself, would there be more to it than just fitting it to the windscreen, plugging in the wire and enabling it in the EVIC ?

(The picture is upside down for some or other reason ...)

it has to be aligned at the dealer to work correctly. if you live in an urban area the smartbeam system is worthless.

What does this alignment entail ? The mounting LED bracket is still on the windscreen, so would it not just be a case of clipping on the module ?

nope, it is a process that can only be done at the dealer.

He's not talking about smartbeam he's talking about rainsense.

Based on the thread title and description..... He was asking about both

I am convinced that my WK never had Smartbeam. So I just want to get the Rainsense working again as well as the Auto headlights.

I removed the headlight sensor from the dash, but it looked fine. Stalk on A however still does nothing and I have no EVIC auto headlight options, so I guess it will have to go to the dealers.

There is no evic headlight options for auto lights, only for smartbeam

Hmm, could that thus just mean that my Auto Headlight sensor in the middle of the dash needs replacement ? Is there a way to test the sensor ?
