In the OFF position, pull the lever gently toward you to spray washer fluid on

In the OFF position, pull the lever gently toward you to spray washer fluid on the windshield and to run the wipers 2-3 cycles.

Use this function when the windshield is dirty. The spray and wiper operation will continue until you release the lever.

If the washer does not work, check the washer fluid level. If the fluid level is not sufficient, you will need to add an appropriate non-abrasive windshield washer fluid to the washer reservoir. The reservoir filler neck is located in the front driver’s side of the engine compartment.

WARNING WARNING

Do not use the washer in freezing temperatures without first warming the windshield with the defrosters; the washer solution could freeze on contact with the windshield and obscure your vision.

✽ NOTICE

To prevent possible damage to the washer pump, do not operate the washer when the fluid reservoir is empty.
