2017 Range Rover Evoque


The rain sensor is mounted on the inside of the windshield, behind the rear-view mirror. The sensor is able to detect the presence and amount of water on the windshield, and automatically activates the windshield wipers, accordingly.


Static droplets may not be detected when the vehicle is first started. A single wipe should be used to clear the windshield.

To activate the rain sensitive wipers, move the wash/wipe control to the AUTO position (1). The behavior of the system may be adjusted to the driver's preference by rotating the collar (2).


If the wash/wipe control is in the AUTO position, the wipers do not operate if either of the front doors are open.


In dry and often sunny conditions, optical influences and dirt accumulation on the windshield may result in the windshield wipers activating inadvertently. To prevent this, it is recommended that, under these conditions, the wash/wipe controls are returned to the OFF position.

The rain sensor feature can be enabled and disabled via the Vehicle Settings menu in the instrument panel. See INSTRUMENT PANEL MENU.
