The windshield wiper mist feature wipes the windshield once. You can use this feature when you have mist or condensation on the windshield, but there is not consistent rain. To use the mist feature, pull up on the wiper level to the MIST position, and immediately release. If you hold the wiper in the MIST position, then the wipers will continue to operate at high speed.
