What my salesperson told me was that it only works after you use the windshield washer several time, i.e., one headlight wash for every 3 windshield washes.

You may have to have the headlights on for this to activate....not sure, but that's the case on our MINI

I think it has something to do with the rain sensor. I was able to activate the rain sensor but not the washer.

this should NOT be dependent on the sensor.

i think:

in the morning: turn on the car. turn on the lights. pull the lever for winshield wipers towards you.

you should get the spray in two bursts, about a second each.

if you pull again right afterwards, it will not spray, as someone said in prior posts.

That's right --- the headlight washer only activates when the headlights are on (not daytime running lights).

I haven’t been able to get my headlight washers to work and I suspect that I don’t have any. I bought my ’02 325xiT last month and I’ve tried all of the above. Multiple windshield washes with the headlights on. Nothing.

I think the cold weather package is required.

You have to have the cold weather package

It works with daytime running lights

Comes on about every third windshield wash
