The windshield wiper and washer switch operates

The windshield wiper and washer switch operates when the ignition switch is placed in the ON position.

Push the lever down to operate the wiper at the following speed:

1 Intermittent — intermittent operation can be adjusted by turning the switch toward A (Slower) or B (Faster). Also, for vehicles equipped with speed dependent wipers, the intermittent operation speed varies in accordance with the vehicle speed. (For example, when the vehicle speed is high, the intermittent operation speed will be faster.)
2 Low — continuous low speed operation
3 High — continuous high speed operation

Push the lever up 4 to have one sweep operation of the wiper.

Pull the lever toward you 5 to operate the washer. The wiper will also operate several times.

WARNING

In freezing temperatures the washer solution may freeze on the windshield and obscure your vision which may lead to an accident. Warm the windshield with the defroster before you wash the windshield.

CAUTION

● Do not operate the washer continuously for more than 30 seconds.
● Do not operate the washer if the windshield-washer fluid reservoir is empty.
● Do not fill the windshield-washer fluid reservoir with washer fluid concentrates at full strength. Some methyl alcohol based washer fluid concentrates may permanently stain the grille if spilled while filling the windshieldwasher fluid reservoir.
● Pre-mix windshield-washer fluid concentrates with water to the manufacturer’s recommended levels before pouring the fluid into the windshield-washer fluid reservoir. Do not use the windshield-washer fluid reservoir to mix the washer fluid concentrate and water.
