A few questions to ask

Evening all,

First up, I dont have auto wiper/lights on my Msport, however I have got what seems to be the rain sensor on the windscreen , the clear bit when you look from the outside to the back of the rear view mirrow in the windscreen?.

Also to enable follow me home light option you have to have the internal light switch set on headlighs for it to work, when you unlock the car the lights come on, but then you have to remember to turn the lights switch to off every time.

Regards

Andy

This function is NOT the follow me home function. Follow me home is the function in which the headlights turn on for a set period of time (40s, 60s etc) in order to luminate your pathway. It is operated by pulling the high beam stalk when the car is switched off.

Well I did ask, what is the sensor thing in the windscreen?

Sorry re come home lights, I was meaning the ones where you unlock and it lights up the front and rear lights. This only happens when you have the lights set to headlamps, kinda wierd.

I think you mean the solar sensor for the climate control: I reckon you have the auto climate control? That comes with a sun sensor on the windscreen where the rainsensor usally is.

Not sure! Think it will ventilate the windscreen more when it measures intensive sunbeams..
