How do I use the windshield wiper de-icer?
If your car is equipped with a windshield wiper de-icer (optional equipment), you have the means of removing ice accumulation and snow from your wiper blades. This is more than a mere convenience – it can greatly enhance safety by keeping your wiper blades free of ice so they clean the windshield better during winter weather. Here’s how to use the system:
Turn the ignition to on (you can only use the de-icing system with the ignition in the on position).
Press the de-icer button located near the bottom of the center stack (it’s the rightmost of the three buttons).
The system will automatically turn off after about 15 minutes.
Don’t touch the lower section of the windshield or the sides of the glass near the pillars because it will be very hot.
