Hi all,


so there is this thing in my lovely 2015 Civic that I hate a lot, basically when I have headlights on and I want to wash my windscreen the headlight washers sprays all my car after the first use, searching here and there I found out it's a normal thing but I just hate it, it's useless since I do a lot of motorways and I have to keep the headlights on, the water in the spraying system ends in half the time and my car gets sprayed all over everytime.

I was wondering if there is a solution to this, I'd like to keep the headlight washer system since I don't like to remove features (even if useless) from my car but this is very frustrating and when my car is fresh & clean it ruins all the work everytime, the only solution is to turn headlights off, spray the windscreen and then turn them on again.

I really don't understand why they did such a useless thing, I have the button to do it if I want to do it, why does it have to be automatic?

Thanks in advance

Your right that when the headlights are on they get washed when you pull the lever.

I'm not aware of any quick fix.

Where's that RTFM emoicon?
It has been discussed in the last two days and it's a 30Amp jobbie.

An idea (In my mind it should work, at least :p ) for you if you're not afraid of a little wiring; You could use a time delay relay like this:
(You'd need a 12V 30A one)

With that, you could set up the headlight washers to only activate when you perform a very long burst.

You'd need to see what's live; If there's constant power to the headlight washer fuse when you pull the washer stalk, it should work.

Hi - sorry for digging out the old thread.
Do you know if it's the same 30A fuse in 10gen? Is it responsible only for headlight washers or anything else?
