    What is the node right on top on the front of the dash? It’s triangular shaped I thought that was it. I’ll get a pic when I can

    I do that too, but it’s nothing like the actual apply and rub off rain x. Water just beads and flies off the windows

    Probably a sun sensor.

    That is the sensor that turns on the lights when it is "dark" or in my case when it is in the shade. You can prove it by covering it up and the lights will come on.

    last few cars with rain sensing wipers I have found that rain-x on the sensor is not a good idea. I generally try and avoid it.

    I went into my settings and see the place for courtesy wipe with the box unchecked (the way I want it) but do not see a box for rain sensing. It is blank after the courtesy wipe. I have the 802A package on a 2019. I looked at the window sticker and it does not mention rain sensor wipers. I would think the 802A would have it. What is going on? If you program yours let us know what you changed in the SCCM and I will see if I can do the same. Does anyone's 2019 have rain sensing wipers?

    Rain sensing wipers is part of the tech package; not included in the 802A.
