I have only used position one since I got the Jeep.

What I haven't looked into, is what happens when you go into the EVIC and turn auto wipers off. Does selecting different positions control the speed of the wipers?

Bill has it exactly, Cadillacs do it this way to, it is sensitivity. In my past vehicles and including the Durango and the Mercedes, I fiddled with it a few times in varied rain conditions and then never to he'd them except for the car wash or when the wife changed the setting. Basically I could have left them in the same position the entire time I owned the vehicle.

Re: Overland Auto rain sensing Windshield wipers

I've had several cars with rain sensing wipers. The Jeep seems to work very well in comparison to others. All of them had variable sensitivity settings, as they should. And the fact that you can turn them off and revert back to conventional wipers with several intermittent settings and and lo/hi is absolutely wonderful. I applaud Jeep.

Re: Overland Auto rain sensing Windshield wipers

It may depend on how the sensitivity range is set at the factory. At least on my MY11, the sensitivity range can be adjusted by the dealer.

Actually dealer says it can be "recalibrated". Apparently this means reset to factory specs and not adjustable.
