Default Rain Sensing Wipers

How do they work? How do you adjust them? I have read the owners manual, but this is the one feature I have not figured out. Will they work with a sprinkle / very light rain? I read that you adjust them by turning the left stick. When I turn the left stick two clicks past fully clockwise the wipers turn on with no rain. What am I missing?

Just turn the wipers on to the first click...it's in the owners manual. They will work automatically after that. The beauty is they will speed up as rain intensity increases and decrease as well.

I had them on a 2005 Grand Cherokee. They seemed to work OK, but it wasn't a 'must-have' feature, by any means. They were fairly sensitive if I recall correctly. Never a problem though. Certainly worked better than the auto high beam headlilghts the thing had. Those were always missing cars coming around curves in the road and I got flashed all the time.

I turned them on the first click and they seemed to work pretty well.
