Another rain sensor query!

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, 

I know there's a million threads on this, however when i've taken my casing off, i've noticed there's 3 black wires, 1 goes to what I assume is the GPS module (pics below) but not sure what the other 2 do, could this be the looming already installed for a rain sensor? 

Googling the code brings up results for GPS module and rain sensor, so i'm a bit confused 

https://www.ebay.co.uk/p/531080105 - rain sensor but other threads seem to suggest this code is just the GPS module.

End goal is auto lights + wipers, which i believe use the same sensor.

Much appreciated in advance!

There's no wiring there for the sensor.

There is a very good thread on here somewhere of how to retrofit rain sensor to the MK3 have a search and follow that

Cheers for the reply, i know the sensor etc isnt there, i was wondering if i had the loom to connect the sensor up to, and what those back cables were for

Yep so there's 3, one goes to the GPS black box, are we thinking the others are heated windscreen + DAB?

Damn, what are the chances there more wiring in the roof liner I can use for the rain sensor? 

Hoping the wiring is there to the BCM, otherwise not sure i'll be able to wire it up myself

None whatsoever I'm afraid.

The guide is spot on though

I have uploaded a copy, hope it works
