Automatic Wipers Issue

I have the automatic wipers turned on via the U-Connect settings. However, the wipers are not coming on automatically. Is there anything else I need to do? Has anyone else experienced this?

You also need to have the wipers set to intermittent. The intermittent setting you use will also determine the sensitivity level.

You'd think they would mention that in the owners manual.

You also need rain.

Any type of water will work. It does not have to be rain

Even a spritz of windex will setoff the auto sensing wipers.

Yes, but it is hard to hold both the Windex bottle and the steering wheel while driving.

Re: Automatic Wipers Issue

The implementation in the jeep is one of the better I've seen... The auto wipers in my Lexus es330 and 350 were terrible... Mist, high speed, downpour, long delay.

Jeeps auto wipers have been exactly what I've wanted 9 out of 10 times
