Sudden loss of visibility through the windshield
could lead to a collision. You might not see other
vehicles or other obstacles. To avoid sudden icing of
the windshield during freezing weather, warm the
windshield with the defroster before and during
windshield washer use.
Heated Windshield Washer Nozzles
This feature utilizes a heating element to thaw out any ice
buildup that could occur at the outlets or within the
windshield washer nozzles. To activate, push the rear
window defroster button. When the rear window de-
froster times out, the heating element will also shut off. If
required, to reactivate the heated nozzles push the rear
window defroster button as needed.
The heated washer nozzles only apply heat to the
nozzle outlets to prevent them from freezing and allow
the nozzles to dispense windshield washer fluid. Always
remove any buildup of snow or ice in front of the washer
nozzles as this will prevent the windshield washer fluid
from reaching the windshield.
Rotate the end of the lever downward to the Mist
position to activate a single wipe cycle to clear off road
mist or spray from a passing vehicle. The wipers will
continue to operate until you release the multifunction
The mist feature does not activate the washer
pump; therefore, no washer fluid will be sprayed on the
windshield. The wash function must be used in order to
spray the windshield with washer fluid.
