WIPER OPERATION

CAUTION

Do not operate the windshield wipers on a dry windshield, as it may inhibit the operation of the wipers.

CAUTION

In freezing or very hot conditions, use the winter park position to allow the wiper blades to be lifted from the windshield should they become stuck. See WINTER PARK POSITION.

CAUTION

Remove any snow, ice or frost from the windshield, around the wiper arms and blades, and from the cowl area before operating the wipers.

CAUTION

To avoid damage to the wiper blade, do not lift the wiper by the wiper blade. Always lift the wiper by the wiper arm.

CAUTION

Make sure the wipers are not in automatic rain sensing mode and are switched off before entering a car wash. If the wipers operate during the car washing process, damage may occur to the wiper mechanism.

NOTES

The windshield is no longer wiped effectively and the automatic rain sensing function degrades if the wipers become worn. Always replace worn or damaged wiper blades as soon as possible.

NOTES

If the wiper blades become stuck or jammed, an electronic cut-out temporarily halts the wiper's operation. If this happens, switch off the wipers and vehicle ignition, when safe to do so. Clear any obstructions and free the wiper blades before attempting to switch on the ignition.

  1. Automatic rain sensing mode: The front wipers respond and adapt automatically to the ambient rain conditions, selecting the appropriate wiper frequency for the prevailing conditions. The sensitivity of the system can be adjusted by rotating the collar (2).

  2. Rotate the collar to adjust the sensitivity of the automatic rain sensing mode when position (1) is selected. The higher the sensitivity position the more responsive the system becomes. When automatic rain sensing mode is selected, or when sensitivity is increased, the system performs a single wipe.

  3. LO: Low speed continuous wipe.

  4. HI: High speed continuous wipe.

  5. Single wipe of the windshield. Hold down for further continuous wipes.

  6. Windshield wash and wipe. Pull and release to operate the front washers and wipers. After a few seconds, a drip wipe clears any residual washer fluid from the windshield. If more washer fluid is required, pull and hold the wash/wiper control position.

    NOTES

    The front wipers do not operate while the hood is open.

  7. INT: Rear wiper intermittent operation. Wiper frequency increases with vehicle speed.

  8. ON: Rear wiper continuous operation.

  9. Rear window wash and wipe: Press and release to operate the rear washer and wiper. The wiper operates in a set cycle to minimize drips when the button is released. If more washer fluid is required, push and hold the button.

    NOTES

    When reverse (R) gear is selected and the front wipers are operating, the rear wiper activates.

    NOTES

    The rear wiper does not operate while the tailgate is open.

Drip wipe on the windshield can be enabled or disabled by a retailer/authorized repairer.

Rear wiper road speed related frequency can be enabled or disabled by a retailer/authorized repairer.

NOTES

If the wipers leave smears on the glass after the car has been washed, this may be due to wax or other residue. Should this occur, clean the glass with the recommended windshield washer fluid. See LUBRICANTS AND FLUIDS.

The service position moves the wipers to allow wiper blade replacement. See WIPERS SERVICE POSITION.
