How Ford Rain Sensing Wipers Work?

Your vehicle may be equipped with available rain-sensing wipers. The sensors will detect moisture on the windshield, and your rain-sensing wipers will automatically turn on in bad weather.

First, let’s be sure your rain-sensing wipers are enabled. Their speed will adjust based on how wet the windshield gets. Using the five-way control on your steering wheel, push the left arrow, choose Settings, Vehicle, Wipers, and ensure that rain-sensing is checked on.

Now, here are a few simple steps to know.

Raising the stock to the first position turns the rain-sensing feature on. And you can change the sensitivity setting by rotating the inner ring up for higher sensitivity and down for lower sensitivity.

The sensitivity will raise the pace and operations of wipers. Keep in mind, when you’re using the rain-sensing mode, your wipers will only wipe when they detect moisture. And they’ll only go as fast as needed to clear away the rain, so they may not wipe consistently.

Of course, you can always choose to control the wipers yourself by using the low or high-speed settings instead. Remember to turn off rain-sensing when you go through a car wash to keep your wipers from automatically turning on. Just move the stock down to the On or Off position.
