(1) MIST/ : For a single wiping cycle, move the lever to this (MIST/ ) position and release it. The wipers will operate continuously if the lever is held in this position.

(2) OFF / O : Wiper is not in operation

(3) INT / --- : Wiper operates intermittently at the same wiping intervals. Use this mode in light rain or mist. To vary the speed setting, turn the speed control knob.

(4) LO / 1 : Normal wiper speed

(5) HI / 2 : Fast wiper speed


If there is heavy accumulation of snow or ice on the windshield, defrost the windshield for about 10 minutes, or until the snow and/or ice is removed before using the windshield wipers to ensure proper operation. If you do not remove the snow and/or ice before using the wiper and washer, it may damage the Wiper and washer system.
