Exclamation Rain sensing wipers.

I had my windshield replaced and after that the rain sensing wiper stopped working or works only intermittently, any idea what could be wrong?

I believe the rain sensing wiper system uses a different windshield with the sensor as part of the window.

they probably put the sensor from the broken glass to the new one - will work for about 2 weeks.

if the glass was not to oem specs then there is nothing you can do since the sensor "glass" is part of the glass itself
