Does the rear wiper have some form of rain sensing? As I reversed out of the garage in the rain today, the rear wiper was intermittently operating even though its control was set to 0. As soon as I started going forwards it stopped. The front wipers were set to auto at the time.

I can’t find anything in the manual about it.

I think it's automatic on reversing and rain combined. I mean, it will not wipe on rain alone.

When reversing it'll follow what the front wipers are doing when on auto.
Not quite sure if the same on the manual settings as I rarely use them.

This is the only thing I can find in the manual (p5-56) . There is no further explanation of what Auto means AFAIK :oops:
Auto rear wiper (in R) (if equipped) : If this item is checked, the Auto rear wiper function will be activated
