The windshield wipers provide visibility when you are driving in wet weather. To turn on the windshield wipers, pull the wiper lever (located on the right side of the steering column) down. If the lever is lowered to the first detent, the wipers will be on the Intermittent setting. If the lever is lowered to the second detent, the wipers will be on the Low setting. If the lever is lowered to the third and final detent, the wipers will be on the High setting.
