Is there a way to make them normal wipers again? When I put the selector in the "normal" range they still act as rain sensing. Augh!
Hi 2k2wranglerx,

It looks like a lot of people have chimed in to help you out on this one, but if you still have questions you can check out the rain-sensing wipers section of the 5th printing of your Owner's Manual; the good stuff starts on page 133. You can download a free copy here:

If you have suggested improvements for the rain-sensing wipers, submit your thoughts to the Your Ideas tab of Once your submission is posted, share the link here so people can vote on it.
