Note:   Fully defrost the windshield before you switch the windshield wipers on.
Note:   Make sure you switch the windshield wipers off before entering a car wash.
Note:   If streaks or smears appear on the windshield, clean the windshield and the wiper blades.If that does not resolve the issue, install new wiper blades.
Note:   The courtesy wipe feature turns on after using the windshield washers to remove any excess washer fluid and debris. You can adjust the courtesy wipe settings in the instrument display.
Wet or winter driving conditions with ice, snow or salty road mist can cause inconsistent and unexpected wiping or smearing.

 Use the rotary control to adjust the sensitivity of the autowipers.When you select low sensitivity, the wipers operate when the sensor detects a large amount of water on the windshield.When you select high sensitivity, the wipers operate when the sensor detects a small amount of water on the windshield.
 Keep the outside of the windshield clean. The rain sensor is very sensitive and the wipers may operate if dirt, mist or insects hit the windshield.
In these conditions, you can do the following:
  • Lower the sensitivity of the autowipers to reduce the amount of smearing on the windshield.
  • Switch to normal or high-speed wipe.
  • Switch autowipers off.
