You may also want to adjust the sensitivity of the wipers by turning the wheel/knob at the end of the stalk, that may make your rain sensing wipers work better.
my high and low constant on settings work fine. But at the first click up (the stalk) that puts it into "inter" mode pretty much means it'll be in rain sensing all the time.

From there you have the adjustable dial on the stalk. It doesn't matter what position i put that in, it's in rain sensing. even right in the middle, it'll be working fine and then the wipers will just go down (like i turned them off) until i either turn them off and on again, or adjust the dial again.

it's the most frustrating thing ever.
