On the E38 7series the sensor is mounted on the inside of the windscreen above the centre rear view mirror, it uses a reflected infra red beam to detect water o nthe windscreen. It is turned on using the wiper stalk in the first position above off.
Not sure if its the same on your car.

switch ignition ON... switch wiper to ur first position, then hose ur windshield. wipers should work when it detects water in the glass.
