Morning all,

I've had my focus for a couple of weeks and I'm having a problem with the rain sensing wipers, I keep turning them on but when I get back in the car they're turned off.

I keep telling my wife to leave the stalk 1 notch up, I saw her using them this morning so reminded her again that she never need worry about windscreen wipers again, but it didn't wash (no pun intended), she told me to stop being a control freak and that she prefers to use them normally.

Is there anything I can do about this?

:) :rolleyes:

Be a man! talk to her severely and tell her that you won't allow her to drive the car again unless she does what she is told. :D

Tell her to buy her own !Removed! car. :P
If my Missus starts fiddling with the car I threaten to not let her in it again.
Sometimes I only unlock the drivers door on purpose just to make a point.
She has terrible phantom brake pedal syndrome too, really annoying.

Hi, if you share a car then you have to be prepared to allow for the way they will like to set them up, all about preferences really. I actually leave mine off auto until it starts to rain. Be a real man and just tolerate and understand, besides it is only the wipers I can think of worse things.

OK, I shall put her in her place, then realise I'm being a nob and it's only some !Removed! windscreen wipers :) I clearly got out of bed the wrong side and took offence to being called a control freak [which is probably true].

The auto wipers don't actually work until your moving which is annoying when you first move away and it's pouring down.
