Hi everybody
My car do not have useful options which is available in full version SDLX. options like Parking Sensor, Auto light ON and rain sensor, Xenon headlight, and Headlight washer and also cruise control.
so I decided to started a project to add some OEM options and come up with these sub projects:
1- Cruise control
2- light and rain sensor
3- Parking Sensor
4- Headlight Washer

cruise control(1) only needed OEM steering wheel with cruise key control the rest is done by ECM.
but other sub project need more technical information and wiring because you can by OEM parts for specific option but no wiring is exist in car. for example for rain sensor you need to wire CAN bus signal and also power and ground to rain sensor.
In following posts I decided to explain how to do that and show the result maybe these information is useful for someone else.

Install Rain and light sensor:
auto light and automatic wiper control in kizashi is managed by BCM (Body Control Module) but in order to do that BCM need Rain/light sensor module, this module is placed in front glass in predefined location.
rain/light sensor communicate with BCM module through CAN bus.
As always I bought parts from
in order to activate this module 2 types of wiring needed
1- power and ground: I use ACC power from G248 connector(Audio System connector).
2- need 2 wires for CAN bus connectivity: I use HVAC unit and tap to WHT and RED wire connected to it. those wires are twisted wire by default.
unfortunately there is no predefined location to mount rain/light sensor module so I use 3M double sided tape (clear type) to mount this unit.
after wiring in first time I turn ON my car autolight LED on cluster is flashing 1s telling me to calibrate this module and after calibration autolight and wiper is working properly.

Autolight update:
in order to activate auto light kizashi uses Auto mode in headlight switch I use simple ON/OFF switch to manually do the job.
yesterday I decided to disassemble headlight switch and found out wire for AUTO mode is missing so I soldered new wire to headlight switch also cut some pieces of switch to add new position in switch and it worked! I just saved 90$ :D :D
in my modification in OFF position system in actually in AUTO mode.

AUTO MODE in OFF position

this unit is a separate unit and no communication with any module in car just uses some signals in kizashi to do the task of controlling washer motor. actuator is mechanical part and just work with water pressure. controller is simple module with 6 Pin connector this module use those signals:
1- power and ground(use IG2 power signal) in my car I use ACC instead of IG2
2- headlight signal
3- headlight washer switch
4- windshield washer signal
5- signal to control washer motor
also headlight washer uses 12V from battery to supply current to drive motor this signal is come from engine fuse box

quick update on headlight washer:
it turns out I made mistake to mount hoses.
hoses should be mounted on front bumper and there are mounting points for metal clips and it make perfect sense now this way disassembling front bumper is so easier :D
