Rain sensing wipers

Is there a code to leave the rain sensing wipers to 'On' by default/at startup?

You can just keep the wiper stalk in the auto position. It'll stay in auto on start up each time.

Mine doesn't except in the short term
It'll revert to "Off" if parked overnight, for example

The US gets a wiper stalk with fixed positions. The rest of the world, to my knowledge, gets the stalk that you “tap” up and down, with the button on the end to turn on the Auto mode. My owner’s manual has separate instructions in several areas for US vs. Canada and the wiper operation is one of the differences.

Depends upon the model year. My 2016 US has a tap for auto, the newer ones (I think 2018 onwards) got the static position instead of the button.

My 2016 X1 has a tap at the end of the stalk which activates the 'auto' for rain sensing wipers. The auto turns itself off every time the car is turned off. Thats why I was asking if there is a code which leaves the wipers always at 'auto' on for rain sensing.
