Rain sensor sensitivity

Hi All,


Anybody have the coding to adjust my 2013 T3 rain sensor. Even on max it doesn't wipe soon enough.


Thanks Guys

So move the stalk up into the active position...... (when you need the more frequent wipes)

My sensor is so sensitive it gives me one more wipe after having sprayed the windshield to clear some dirt. Seems a little excessive to me.

It's called a teardrop wipe and is defeatable.

I'm having the same problem. The automatic wipers never clear the windshield enough, and the "low" setting is excessive.

I turned off , unchecked the box for this using VCDS and it's still active. So annoying and useless.

Man mine has a bad habit of turning on when a larger bug hits my windshield before I can get the washer going... palmetto bugs leave an insane amount of guts everywhere.

I reckon that that is one of the best features of the wiper system.
