Does anyone know what the two modules are on my ST-2?

 

Im guessing they are rain and light sensors, yet the car does not have auto lights/wipers; but even if it did, the rain sensor would not be cleared by the wiper if this was the case.

 

Any ideas? And even better any way to switch these bad boys onto the car?

"Rain sensor" from the back, behind the rear view mirror

"Rain sensor" from the other side, you can just about see where the 2 parts of the sensor are

"Light sensor" inside and outside.

 

Thanks

Auto dimming mirror and sun loading sensor for your climate control system.

I heard it was GPS for the emergency assistance.

I've just had a look, there are no connections running from the auto dimming sensor to the rear view, so even if I wanted to switch it on I couldn't. Emergency assist sounds like a good shout. If it is that let's hope I never have to use it!

The sensor for the auto dimming rear mirror is actually in the mirror itself. A small photoelectric cell, top centre of the mirror.

The thingy on the dash is the climate sensor.
Emergency assist is via your bluetooth connected to your phone and as already mentioned the mirror sensor is behind the mirror.

This is what the rain / light sensor should look like

Not sure if the Fiesta is the same, but in the Focus that little sensor on the dash is a light sensor for the auto-dimming backlit dials, radio display etc... If you cover it over with something black, all the displays dim... maybe the Fiesta is the same?
