Wipers and Washers



Wipers and Washers


The windshield wipers and screen wash 
functions are controlled by the right-hand 
column lever switch and only operate with 
the ignition in position II.

The lever functions are as follows:

1. Windshield wipers off and parked.

2. Intermittent wipe.

3. Slow wiper operation.

4. High speed wiper operation.

5. Rotary collar.

Intermittent wipe

When intermittent wipe is selected, the 
delay between wipes can be varied. Turn 
the collar (5) to vary the delay from three 
seconds to 18 seconds.

Flick wipe

Pull the column switch towards the 
steering column for a single wipe. Holding 
the column switch in this position will 
operate the wiper continuously at slow 
speed until released.

Rain sensitive wiper control

When AUTO (turn the rotary collar (5) to 
AUTO) and intermittent wipe (2) are 
selected, the wipers will automatically 
operate when rain falls on to the 
windshield, or when moisture is present.

For the wipers to operate, the ignition 
switch must be in position II.

Note: When starting a journey with a wet 
windshield, the rain sensing wipers will 
not operate immediately when the ignition 
is turned on. Therefore, a flick wipe should 
be used to clear the windshield of any 

• Make sure that AUTO is not 

selected when entering a car wash 
as damage to the wiper blades and 
arms can occur.

• During frosty conditions make sure 

that AUTO is not selected before 
operating the ignition switch, as 
damage to the wiper blades can 
occur when the windshield is 

Wipers ON, Lights ON

Note: Some States require lights on when 
the wipers are in use.

If the windshield wipers are switched on in 
AUTO, slow or fast modes, for more than 
20 seconds, then the exterior lamps will 
be switched on if selected to autolamps 
mode. The lamps will switch off two 
minutes after the wipers are switched 
OFF, or will go off straight away if 
autolamps is de-selected, or the ignition 
is turned OFF.


Wipers and Washers



Push the button on the end of the switch 
to obtain the wash and wipe programme. 
If the wipers are selected off or 
intermittent, the washers will operate at 
slow speed during the washing action 
when the button is pressed.

When the button is released, the wipers 
will complete three further wipes.

If rain sensitive wipers are fitted and 
selected, then the wipers will operate until 
no moisture is detected.
