Default .2 Wipers A switch functions

Does anyone know what the "int" and "off" mean on the A switch for the wipers? I figured int meant intermittent, but my wipers don't seem to have an intermittent function - only rain sensing. I looked in the manual but it does not address the int and off part of the A switch. Tks

Never thought about it - good question. Rain-sensing only has been my experience. I'm in Seattle, so I find it simpler to just leave it at the INT position all the time and they never wipe when it's dry. Sometimes I do flick the "sensitivity" switch at the tip of the wiper stalk, as an alternate way to manually trigger a wiper pass.

Wipers? I was wondering what the extra stalk was for!

The rain sensing function is intermittent. It will only run as fast as needed up to the high level you see in manual mode. You're right there is no manual intermittent you can set, and it will stay at that speed. The rain sensing is intermittent, but self adjusting based on need.

True. I'm rarely out in the rain with this car, but once in a blue moon I'll get caught out in it.
