Where is the sensor located for the rain-sensing wipers?
The sensor is mounted in contact with the inside of the windshield, near the rearview mirror. The sensor projects infrared light into the windshield at a 45-degree angle. If the glass is dry, most of this light is reflected back into the sensor by the front of the windshield.
How do rain sensing wipers work?
