How do you operate the windshield wipers?
You need to drive in all types of weather – your wipers help you with that. They wipe away rain, snow and help with sleet as well. Of course, you need to know how to use them to benefit from this feature. It’s not complicated, though. Here’s how:
Locate the windshield wiper control lever on the right side of the steering wheel.
Pull the lever to the first position for intermittent wiping.
Turn the center ring to change the speed - farther forward increases the speed, and turning it backward decreases the speed.
Pull the lever down two positions for low speed wiping.
Pull the lever down three positions for high speed wiping.
If you only need a temporary wipe, pull the lever up.
To spray your windshield, pull the lever toward you. Washer fluid will jet on the windshield and the wipers will wipe several times. Note that there is a one-time courtesy wipe several seconds after the final normal wipe.
You can only work the wipers with the ignition in the accessory or on positions.
