Hi everyone so I have a 2017 kia cadenza and my rain sensing wipers never detect rain i have then in the auto under the mist option and it does do the active wipe showing that im in sensing mode but it hasn't wiped once for me when it rains I've even tried pouring water on the sender to activate it still nothing is this covered under warranty or am I missing somthing?

On my 2017, it activates, but only after a lot of rain falls. Never use it because it does not activate soon enough.

Mine has been working pretty well since I got it, though the sensitivity to rain seems to have decreased over time. I used to have it on 2nd-lowest or lowest setting. Now I need to have it on 2nd-highest or highest to get the same activation level.
Sensor may be degrading over time.

I've also noticed that if it hasn't rained for a while the sensor is less sensitive - maybe dust on the sensor - but after driving in rain for a bit it livens up a little.

Definitely sounds like a warranty issue to me as well.
