Auto headlights and rain sense wipers not working
 
The automatic headlights stay off when it is dark and the rain since wipers turn on regardless of rain. I have tried replacing the sun sensor the Mf switch, and the ignition switch none of which have resolved the issue.

Did you make sure the auto settings are applied in the EVIC system. They won't work till they are turned on there first. Then the wiper setting should be on the second notch.

Yup wipers are on rain sense on second notch and the smart beams are on high/low

check fuse 21 in junction block. it feeds power to light/rain sensor.

Yes it turns out the stupid fuse was blown. I wish I had figured out that it was a 60 cent fuse before I spent a 150 dollars. Thanks chicken

I didn't know that rain sense needed to be in the second notch before it was engaged...interesting...might have to flip that setting at lunch hour.:lol:

Unless that just means that they're not in the "off" position, because I feel like the rain-sense has always worked on mine...

Doesn't have to be second it can be anywhere between 2nd and fourth I think

Could swear the manual said second but you can figure it out.
