Silly question

Silly question but does anyone know how to slow down the speed of the windshield wipers? its seems like the slowest speed oscillates back and forth about every second... it just bothers me.

the first setting is the interval that uses the rain sensor so should go as quickly as its raining. that speed then can be adjusted by the dial on the stalk.

+1 just use the automatic wipers and adjust with the little knob on the stalk.

no silly questions only silly answers ... unless it is work related and you are the supervisor

... way back when some 18 people reported to me they bombarded me with silly questions, so much that I almost ended up with a nervous breakdown. So one day after another sleepless night I made a decision and first thing in the morning called a staff meeting.

I simply declared ... "From this day forward if anyone of you as an issue or work related question I like you to think of three solutions and only then come to me to discuss them"

You know what it worked like a charm, no more silly questions and best of all no more sleepless nights

wipers drive me nuts too. I much prefer the time intervals vs sensors.
