Just out of curiosity...

Does anyone by chance know what that black sensor looking thing is for above the rear view mirror. Its stuck onto the glass directly behind the interior light/sun glasses holder with a cable going into the mounting. I found it when i was inspecting before installing my bluetooth module...

The only thing i can think of is an interior light sensor or something of the like. However i thought the light sensor in the middle of the dash would suffice for both interior and exterior...

Thanks :)

No auto wipers on the VE Omega, Berlina, SV6, SS etc etc. Calais models up have the auto wipers. A picture from the OP would be most helpful... :)

Perhaps, like a lot of things in the VE, they wire things up at some points - but dont hook it all together (or add plug in bits) for lesser spec models? So it could well be the rain sensing wiper bits and pieces up there, just that it isnt connected to the wiper system.

Having one part or wiring procedure for that top part of the car might be simpler on the production line...

I was wondering that myself just now. It's definitely not a standard fitment (happy to be proven wrong) for an Omega. It sounds very much like an aftermarket fitting of some sort. The only wiring for the Omega up there is the courtesy light loom - 4 wires and possibly a BT mic if handsfree is fitted. Neither explains the extra bit...

It's a rain sensor.
