    Auto Windscreen Wiper Activation

    Hi,
    I'm new to your forum, so appreciate any help.

    I have a 2010 model year A3 2.0TDI.

    I recently replaced the windscreen to fit the auto dimming mirror. This screen also has the sensor for auto wipers.
    I have the wiring diagrams from ElsaWin, so should be able to figure out the wiring.
    My question is, can i use VCDS to activate the auto wipers?

    Thanks
    Andy

    Welcome to the forum.

    Yes auto lights/wipers can be enabled via vcds if the systems are fitted.

    Hi NHN,

    Thanks for that,
    I think perhaps I didn't phrase the question correctly. Part two should have said "how"

    The question was answered on another forum:

    09 Cent Elec
    Coding, Long Coding Helper
    Rain/Light Sensor Installed
    Coming Home via (0 = personalisation, 1 = rain/light sensor) ie tick this box
    Next problem - DRL no longer works; the headlights come on instead.
    Maybe the auto wipers option only works when auto lights are also fitted?

    Cheers,
    Andy
