How to turn on headlight sprayer ??

So I went to use my normal windshield wipers the other day, and I noticed water spraying out of the headlights... not sure how I made that happen. I usually pull the stick towards my body to activate the normal windshield wipers.. not sure if I pulled it in a certain direction or what not... does anyone know the specific way to do it ?

I believe every three pulls on the windshield wipers activate the headlights too. I believe lights need to be in auto or on position.

It is 5 times with the headlights on. On the 5th pull with the lights on the headlight nozzles will spray.

Yes. On the 5th pull (With Headlights or parking lights on) So if you pull it 3 times in the night time, and then 2 times the next day in the daylight with your lights off, your count is still "3" When you do it 2 more times when your lights are on, then you get the "5" count and your headlight washers will spray.

This feature just makes me car dirtier... I believe you can code this feature out though.
