The intermittent wipers allow you to control the frequency of the windshield wipers. To use the intermittent wipers, follow these easy steps:

  1. Locate the wiper lever, which is on the right side of the steering column.

  2. Pull the wiper lever down one notch, to the INT position.

  3. Rotate the intermittent band towards the windshield to increase the wiper frequency, or rotate the band towards you to decrease the wiper frequency.
