Dose your car have rain sensing wipers?
No it does not.... the Privilege is sort of top-of-the-range and has got lots of kit, e.g. CD-changer, keyless-wireless ignition, panoramic roof etc, but not rain sensors. I always knew that having all these electrics on a French car can't be a good thing...
BBC - Watchdog: Renault gets lost on the Scenic route
Jolly good looks like I might be able to get it fixed for a £100 (if Renault's offer still stands - the article above is dated almost two years ago).
I had the same on my wifes car, got renault dealer to resolve it FOC, common fault. if you struggle PM me, there is an after market company that will refurbish it, very easy to install.
