headlamps on with wipers?

I just noticed a feature on the evic for headlamps on with wipers. I just tried it with the lights in the off position and the wipers to the "on" position for 20 or so cycles, but the lights didn't turn on. Do the lights have to be in auto or am I missing something?

Re: headlamps on with wipers?

You haven't been reading you owner's manual.

Headlights With Wipers If Equipped
When this feature is selected, and the headlight switch is
in the AUTO position, the headlights will turn on approximately
10 seconds after the wipers are turned on.

Lol. I actually looked it up in the evic portion in the manual and the wiper section and all it said was that it was an option that you could select.

Bill, coming through again like a champ!

I'd like to report that it works (thanks bill)! I couldn't try it last night bc by the time I wrote the thread it was dark out. So, today, I put the lights on auto and turned on the wipers. If I recall, it went through 9 or so cycles then the lights clicked on.

Yahtzee
