Jeep Liberty: Rain Sensing Wipers — If Equipped - Windshield Wipers And Washers - Understanding The Features Of Your Vehicle - Jeep Liberty Owner's ManualJeep Liberty: Rain Sensing Wipers — If Equipped

This feature senses moisture on the windshield and automatically activates the wipers for the driver. This feature is especially useful for road splash or overspray from the windshield washers of the vehicle ahead. Rotate the end of the windshield wiper/washer control lever to one of the five intermittent wiper settings to activate this feature.

The sensitivity of the system is adjustable from the windshield wiper/washer control lever. Wiper delay position 1 is the least sensitive and wiper delay position 5 is the most sensitive. Choose position 3 for normal rain conditions. Choose position 2 or 1 if you desire less wiper sensitivity. Choose position 4 or 5 if you desire more sensitivity. Place the lever in the off position when not using the system.

NOTE:
• The rain-sensing feature will not operate when the wiper speed is in the low or high position.

• The rain-sensing feature may not function properly when ice or dried salt water is present on the windshield.

• Use of Rain-X or products containing wax or silicone may reduce rain sensor performance.

• The rain-sensing feature can be turned on and off through the Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC) — if equipped. Refer to “Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC)/Personal Settings (Customer-Programmable Features)” in “Understanding Your Instrument Panel” for further information.

The rain-sensing system has protective features for the wiper blades and arms. It will not operate under the following conditions:

• Low Temperature Wipe Inhibit — The rain-sensing feature will not operate when the ignition is first switched ON, the vehicle is stationary, and the outside temperature is below 32° F (0° C). If the wiper control is moved, the vehicle speed becomes greater than 0 mph (0 km/h), or the outside temperature rises above freezing the rain-sensing feature will then operate.

• Neutral Wipe Inhibit — The rain-sensing feature will not operate when the ignition is ON, and the shift lever is in the NEUTRAL position, and the vehicle speed is less than 5 mph (8 km/h), unless the wiper control is moved or the shift lever is moved out of the NEUTRAL position.

• Remote Start Wipe Inhibit (Vehicles Equipped with Remote Start System) — The rain-sensing feature will not operate when the vehicle is in remote start mode.

This feature will return to normal operation once remote start mode is exited. Refer to “Remote Start System” in “Things To Know Before Starting Your Vehicle” for further information.
