vehicles or other obstacles. To avoid sudden icing of
the windshield during freezing weather, warm the
windshield with defroster before and during wind-
shield washer use.
Push the multi-function lever inward (toward the steer-
ing column) to the first detent to activate a single wipe

(toward the steering column) to the second detent and
hold it for as long as washer spray is desired.

two wipe cycles after releasing the lever and then resume
the intermittent interval previously selected.
If you activate the washer while the windshield wiper is
turned OFF, the wipers will operate for two wipe cycles
and then turn OFF.
