    MK5 "tricks" on a MK4?

    With referance to this thread.
    http://www.astraownersclub.com/vb/sh...91#post1364891

    Is it possible to have the rear wiper come on if you have the front wipers on and the car in reverse?
    I'm assuming it'll just be the addition of a relay.

    What about opening the windows on the remote key?

    Possible or not.

    It has to be possible Keif as my Girlfreinds Megane Coupe does it.

    How, sorry I don't have a clue!

    I can open and close my windows on my MK 5 with the key fob, never heard about the rear window wiper.

    I would personally just turn it on if needed but hey ho.

    I used to have this on my 2003 Corsa C, Could open and close the windows with the remote and the rear wiper working with the front when the car is in reverse.

    I had a 5 door SXI. It would be nice to have the wiper feature again though.

    With a risk of answering my own question.

    I assume you'll need a 4 pin relay.



    Then have a feed from the front wipers (Pin 1), going to the rear wiper (Pin 3).

    Then have a feed from your reverse light (Pin 2) to earth (pin 4)

    Waits for Autosparks......

    just read through that about the wiper ect....
    when i had my 53 plate corsa c sxi, i could lock the car and hold the key down in the key hole bit and close the windows... as i can do im my astra know, my sis has the car now, and i askd her to run outside and check, and if she has the front wipers on, the rear one will come on and wipe once when its put into reverse!
