If you don't use your rear window sprayer, just hook the hose from the rear window pump to the line for the headlight sprayers.
I use the rear window washer occasionally.
How about teeing into the washer fluid line before any pumps......plugging the fluid line that goes to the HL washer......and putting a 12v washer pump and switch just for the HL washer?
Where to get 12v that's only hot when the Jeep is running?

Re: How to activate the headlight washers on 2014

As mentioned previously, I saw the post date of this thread, but wanted to say hello. I recently moved to CO, so I am trying to do research and gain as much knowledge as possible for driving in snow. Castle Rock here, BTW. Saw that you have an A6. Might be my next summer car :-)

Re: How to activate the headlight washers on 2014

I have the headlamp washers on my '14 Summit. I didn't think they were available on anything below the Summit trim level. They only activate when the headlamps are on (in auto mode or the switch set to on) and you use the front windshield washer.

Re: How to activate the headlight washers on 2014

I bought a 15 Altitude a few months ago, then opted to also buy a 15 Summit. That is why I was asking. Just got it 2 weeks ago, and even the sales people didn't know how they came on. I thought it would be best to post here. Thanks for the reply.

Re: How to activate the headlight washers on 2014

Got 2 weeks on a 15 JGC Summit and no signs of headlight washers. Got small rectangle cutouts under the HID headlamps but they didn't come out and spray no matter how long I held the washer on the stalk spraying the windshield with the headlights on. Guess I'll keep holding the wife's ankles as she cleans the headlights at speed. Biatch gives me any lip and I'll let go.

Re: How to activate the headlight washers on 2014

So my 2014 US SRT has headlight washers? Guess I never spray my windshield and it hardly rains here...

Re: How to activate the headlight washers on 2014

I should trigger mine just so they get some exercise. Do they really clean the headlights or just get the dirt wet?

Re: How to activate the headlight washers on 2014

I think they just power spray them. I have only had mine for two months, and I still can't figure it out. I even called Jeep direct, and they had no clue what I was even talking about (dead serious. they were nice on the phone though). From what I have gathered online, the headlights need to be ON (not auto, but rather, the manual on), and then every fourth cleaning on the actual windshield, it cleans the headlamps. I guess I need to grab a neighbor or something, because I would look like an idiot with the summit running in the driveway, and then me scrambling to the front of the car every 10 seconds.

Re: How to activate the headlight washers on 2014

I would think it would be the same for 14/15 and the 2016, so...

This is from the 2016 owners manual...

"HEADLIGHT WASHERS — IF EQUIPPED
The multifunction lever operates the headlight washers
when the ignition switch is in the ON position and the
headlights are turned on. The multifunction lever is
located on the left side of the steering column.
To use the headlight washers, push the multifunction
lever inward (toward the steering column) and release it.
The headlight washers will spray a timed high-pressure
spray of washer fluid onto each headlight lens. In addition,
the windshield washers will spray the windshield
and the windshield wipers will cycle.
NOTE: After turning the ignition switch and headlights
ON, the headlight washers will operate on the first spray
of the windshield washer and then every eleventh spray
after that."

I don't have my 2016 Summit yet, so I can't verify the procedure. I will definitely test it out once I get it, though.

Re: How to activate the headlight washers on 2014

Yes, it just wets the headlights.

I have not found it to be something I would use. If I ever need to use it I think I will have to pull over and read the manual again

My SRT is garaged all winter so I doubt I'll ever need it. At least they didn't put those silly little wiper blades on the front like the old Saabs, Mercedes, and Volvos had.
