Ok so I just learned this weekend how to use my headlight washers (sort of). I didn't even know I had them until someone pointed out to me that it comes with the cold weather package and i have heated seats/mirrors. I got it to work a few times by putting the lights on then spraying the windsheild but it only works every once in a while. Anyone know how to actually get it to work on cue or how often it's supposed to go on?

I Believe you have to hold down the lever for a few second or so.

RTFOM

The headlight washers come on every 5th time the windshield wipers are used.

... and only when the lights are on.

From the manual:
Cleaning headlamps*
When the vehicle's lighting system is
switched on, the headlamps will also be
cleaned every fifth time cleaning windshield
5 is activated.
To deactivate
Press the button if the indicator lamp is
on.
