Nobody could afford to use those in alberta...chipped and cracked windshields are as common as oil out here.

Not hardly. I just had my windshield replaced in June with a Ford OEM windshield and it was just over $400. The sensor isn't IN the windshield. It just has a clear spot where the sensor mounts to next to the rear view mirror.

It's not much more or more at all than a regular F-150 windshield really.

F150 must be different than the Flex then. A friend just had their windshield replaced in their Flex with the rain sensing wiper system. It was right at $1,000 for the new windshield. The dealer told them it was so expensive due to the rain sensing wiper system. Without it, they said it was about $350.

I have them and mine are ok.

Thanks @KJ Smith, I never thought about looking. DUH. I'm sure if I could get over being old I would be able to get used to them. However, I have a pre-conceived idea of how wipers should work, and this ain't it. Thanks again.

Mine have come on for no reason several times in that last couple weeks. Sunny out. Anybody have any ideas why this happening. They really don't react to the different intensities of rain very fast.

I agree. After a heavy downpour stopped it was quite cloudy/dark outside, and the things kept going on and off. I had to turn them completely off to get them to stop.

Your welcome.... sometimes the old way is the best way.


Mine work ok.... and I have the headlights setup to come on whenever the windshield wipers come on.... nice features.... if they work right.

Its not necessarily rain that they sense.


If your windshield gets a little dusty/dirty that can set them off.... a fogging windshield will also set them off.
