How do I turn on the windshield wipers?

The windshield wipers are key safety features that dramatically increase visibility when it is raining. The windshield wipers have three settings: INT (intermittent), LO (low), and HI (high). To turn them on, pull down on the wiper lever, which is located on the right side of the steering column. Pull the lever down one notch for the INT setting, two notches for the LO setting, or three notches for the high setting.
