I have an 09 Mazda6s GT with the rain sensing wipers. I had the windshield replaced yesterday. Now when I start the car, the wipers make one sweep of the windshield and then park. They never did this before. They otherwise work as designed. What happened?

It could be that they need to be reset - manual suggests doing this in event of windshield replacement. Here's how to reset the auto wipers

1. Ignition off - wipers on OFF
2. Turn wipers to AUTO position
3. Turn ignition ON - Within 10 seconds - switch from AUTO to OFF 5 times - 1 second off 1 second auto
4. The wipers will cycle once to register new initialization


Give it a try - hope it helps. Mine we so sensitive when I first got it - tried this and now they work great !!

I'm gonna need this next week . . . cracked the windshield from the vin plate to the upper passenger side corner :eek:

I'd heard that washing a car when it's hot can do this, but it's never happened on ANY of the vehicles I'd had :(

FYI: HOT = under 90 degrees inside and about 60 degrees outside . . . and the glass is cool enough to hold your hand on it (grumble)

I'm having this same issue, I can't get the reset instructions to work on my '09 6iGT. I tried the above instructions, but it doesn't seem to do anything. Everytime I turn on the ignition my wipers wipe once. The sensor is clean. What am I doing wrong? :confused:
