The windshield wipers stop working three strokes after the stalk is released, followed by a final stroke six sec-onds later to complete the cycle.

Mist
Push the lever upward to the MIST position and release for a single wiping cycle.

NOTE:
The Mist feature does not activate the washer pump; therefore, no washer fluid will be sprayed on the windshield. The washer function must be used to spray the windshield with washer fluid.

WARNING!
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.

CAUTION!
Always remove any buildup of snow that prevents the windshield wiper blades from returning to the parked position. If the windshield wiper switch is turned off, and the blades cannot return to the parked position, damage to the wiper motor may occur.

RAIN SENSING WIPERS —IF EQUIPPED
This feature senses rain or snowfall on the windshield and automatically activates the wipers. The Rain Sen-sor is located behind the interior rearview mirror.2024 Dodge Hornet RAIN SENSING WIPERS IF EQUIPPED 1
The sensor has an adjustment range that varies progressively from wiper still (no stroke) when the windshield is dry, to wiper at continuous speed (fast opera-tion) with intense rain.

Activation

  1. Rotate the wiper switch to the Low Sensitivity Rain Sensing position or High Sensitivity Rain Sensing position.
  2. Tap the wiper and stalk upwards.

The variation in sensitivity during rain sensor operation is signalled by a stroke of the wiper.
If the windshield washer is used with the rain sensor activated, the normal washing cycle is performed, and then the rain sensor resumes its normal automatic operation.

NOTE:
Keep the glass in the sensor area clean.

Deactivation
To turn off the Rain Sensing Wipers, use the wiper switch or place the ignition in the OFF position.
In the event of malfunction of the rain sensor, while it is active, the windshield wiper operates intermittently at a speed consistent with the sensitivity setting of the rain sensor, whether or not there is rain on the glass for as long as the sensor failure is indicated on the display.
The sensor continues to operate and it is possible to set the windshield wiper to continuous mode (low or high). The failure indication remains on for as long as the sensor is active.
The rain sensor can recognize and automatically adjust itself when the following conditions occur:

  • Presence of dirt on the controlled surface (e.g., salt, dirt, etc.).
  • The presence of streaks of water is caused by the worn window wiper blades.
  • Difference between day and night.

REAR WINDOW WIPER/WASHER
Shifting the vehicle into REVERSE with the windshield wiper operating activates a single cycle of the rear window wiper.
Push the windshield wiper lever downward (with the vehicle in REVERSE) to activate/deactivate continuous rear wiper operation.
Push the windshield wiper lever downward (without the vehicle in REVERSE) to activate/deactivate intermittent rear wiper operation.
Push the windshield wiper lever towards the instrument panel to activate the rear window washer (a brief push activates one washing cycle while keeping the stalk pushed washes continuously until the stalk is released).

NOTE:
Make sure the rear wiper is turned off when cleaning the windshield glass.
