Is there a way to disable headlight washers?

I swear it's not every 4th pull or whatever interval I pull the windshield wash lever...seems like every damn time...that shit sprays everywhere...is there an easy way to disable the headlight washers?

Pull the fuse until you can code them.

Yep, that is pretty annoying for sure. +1 on the no headlight auto position.

You can also unplug the headlight washer pump if coding isn't easily available to you. They will wash if the headlights are on, doesn't matter if its on auto or not.

It's pretty darn easy to just turn off the headlights, spray, then turn the lights back on/auto. That is unless it's dark out and you're moving.

That is what I do! A buddy of mine had them coded to not function.
