You can look in lexia to see if the sensor is detected by the BSI.

Fuse F7 supplies the alarm and the bright sensor and if this is blown, it will need to be replaced.

Hello

If your C3 never came from the factory with one, I don't think any of them would be compatible.

You will need the software in the BSI to have the setting and you need the ability to enable it using lexia tool along with the sensor and the loom.


Post the VIN and I will see if it ever had the sensor fitted and which one is had.

Just fitting the sensor won't make the system work. Unless a feature has previously been enabled in the car's computer it won't know there's a sensor.

If it was too easy to enable extra features no one would pay the manufacturer's prices for them on new vehicles. It would be cheaper to buy a basic car and add features. This isn't good business for car manufacturers.
If at first you don't succeed, destroy all the evidence and pretend you never tried :lol:

It is an SX model from 2002 that had rain sensing wipers from the factory :)

The code that comes back for your C3 for the rain sensor is 6405.P6 and that number relates to 9655225480 (here).


There is no mention of that other part number you have in your photo. That is not to say it won't work, they way to try is to actually fit it. Then get into lexia and make any changes to the configuration as necessary.


Obviously the right part will just go straight in, if, as in your case the car is factory programmed to it.
