The invention is directed to an automatic system for activating vehicle headlights upon the actuation of a windshield wiper. The windshield wipers automatically begin a wiping cycle when moisture is sensed on a windshield. In the preferred embodiment, a moisture sensing device is strategically placed in the left-hand side of the windshield, at the end of a wiper blade track. When the windshield is no longer wet, the wiping cycle will stop and the headlights will remain on for a short period of time thereafter before turning off.
