It can take a few swipes with the windshield wet to clean/break surface tension on the windshield before the wipers stay off.

But if it makes unnecessary swipes it's either not initialized (adjusted to windscreen properties) or the sensor is not working perfectly correctly.

It def need to be calibrated. I had my windshield replaced and sensing mode ran randomly until I calibrated. I used my scanner but it just told me how it's prob in the manual.

I did initialize through INPA. Is calibrating something different?
I'm gonna turn the key to ON and spray the sensor once and then leave it alone to see if it keeps swiping.

Initialize is the calibration.

Wow you're some kind of a rain sensor expert!
With the wiper switch on 1st position (automatic wipers), I initialized the sensor in INPA, then turned off the wiper arm and ignition. Then turned it on to run position and put the wiper switch to automatic. It did one swipe.
I sprayed the windshield and the wipers swiped twice and that's it. I waited 5 minutes and no extra swipes.
Then sprayed again, it did 2 swipes with interval of about 5 seconds and no more swipes.
This is now working perfectly. Your help is much appreciated!
Not that useful of a feature but lots if satisfaction to have gotten it to work

For somebody with misophonia, it's a life safer. I can't tolerate wipers running: it's like fingernails on a chalkboard. If I'm in a car without rain sensing, I have to manually wipe with the hit it once button add needed.
