Default Automatic windshield wipers

I have this feature and it has drizzled a couple times since getting the truck but they have yet to turn on automatically. One time I waited until I could barely see but nothing. The setting is on on the radio. Is there a way to adjust the sensitivity on them or something?

You would think that if you couldn't see they should have gone on. Hope you get it figured out.

Maybe it just hasn't rained hard enough. I would like to see them in action though, along with the auto high beams.

How are the auto high beams supposed to work?

My wife has them on her '12 Grand Cherokee. They are extremely responsive. A couple drops of water turns them on.

Did you enable the rain sense wipers by selecting one of the five available settings by rotating the multifunction lever?

This ^^^ I've heard the settings on the multi-function lever adjust the sensitivity of the wipers. I'm assuming if that's turned off completely the auto wipers will not work.

If I recall correctly the option for automatic wipers has to be enabled and then the wipers should be left in the 3rd intermittent position (from off turn the stalk 3 clicks).

Edit: For some reason the entire thread didn't load so I didn't see all the previous messages answering the question. Apologies for being redundant!
