Rain sensor initial sweep
« on: March 27, 2018, 19:19:23 »
Have just purchased a 2013 i40 with rain sensor. Love the feature, but when it stops raining the wipers of course also stop and I don't think more about the wipers. Next time starting the car, it performs the initial sweep on the now dry and dusty windscreen.. :(

Is there any way to turn off that initial sweep function..?

What an absolute pain in the ass that is.

That has been the case on both my i30s and as I recall, my dealership said that the "diagnostic initiation sweep" cannot be adjusted or inhibited.

Thankfully, my Ioniq does not perform such a glass-scraping cycle.

And hey - welcome to HOCGB  :D

Hyundai anomaly, great when the wipers are stuck to the screen with ice, rips all the rubber off before the windscreen heater melts the ice :(
