I recently purchased a 2004 MDX, and the intermittent wipers never worked.
After some research I found the original rain sensitive windshield had been replaced with a aftermarket without rain sensing.
Is it possible to bypass the rain sensor either by installing a jumper or programming the computer.
A new factory windshield with rain sensing is $1000.00 so I would rather bypass the sensor if possible.
Thank you

These schematics are exactly what I need but I can't get the resolution high enough to read them.
Is it possible to send a higher quality image or email a pdf file.
Thanks again

Hi there,
thanks again for the help, I have checked my email inbox and can't find any files.
Did you send them to my hotmail address or can you pm them to me?

I am new to this so I am not sure if you can pm files

Yo Service Writer,

Thanks for the back up. I never would have thought of that ;)

Hi lunenburger,

I sent them to your hotmail but if you did not get it, I need to configure my account. Seems it sometimes cannot send to Hotmail

I checked my spam folder and inbox and nothing has arrived. There is lots of space available in my hotmail account.
Not sure why it wouldn't go through?

I have the same problem with my MDX. IS the fix to rewire so the intermittent control on the column works manually? I also need the diagrams. I tried to enlarge the pictures but that didn't work.

Thanks,
BK
