Kia Sportage: Wipers and Washers / Autowipers (IF EQUIPPED)

Lincoln Corsair Owners Manual / Wipers and Washers / Autowipers (IF EQUIPPED)

Wet or winter driving conditions with ice, snow or salty road mist can cause inconsistent and unexpected wiping or smearing.

Lincoln Corsair. Autowipers (IF EQUIPPED)

  1. Autowipers On.
  2. High sensitivity.
  3. Low sensitivity.

Lincoln Corsair. Autowipers (IF EQUIPPED) Use the rotary control to adjust the sensitivity of the autowipers.

When you select low sensitivity, the wipers operate when the sensor detects a large amount of water on the windshield. When you select high sensitivity, the wipers operate when the sensor detects a small amount of water on the windshield.

Keep the outside of the windshield clean. The rain sensor is very sensitive and the wipers may operate if dirt, mist or insects hit the windshield.

In these conditions, you can do the following:

Note: Fully defrost the windshield before you switch the windshield wipers on.

Note: Make sure that you switch the windshield wipers off before entering a car wash.

Note: If streaks or smears appear on the windshield, clean the windshield and the wiper blades. If that does not resolve the issue, install new wiper blades.

Note: If you switch autolamps and autowipers on, the headlamps turn on when the windshield wipers continuously operate.

Autowipers Settings

This setting defaults to on and remains on until you switch it off in the touchscreen.

When you switch the feature off, the wipers do not operate based on the rain sensor. When you switch on the windshield wipers to the intermittent wipe position with the feature off, the wipers use the wipe speed set by the rotary control.

Low Temperature Wipe Inhibit

The rain sensing feature will not operate immediately after starting your vehicle when it is in park (P) and the outside temperature is below 32°F (0°C). You can switch on the wipers by adjusting the rain sensor sensitivity or adjusting the wiper speed.

This prevents damage to the wiper blades from ice and snow on the windshield.
