Drivers are just realizing there's a secret button in their car that means it will wash itself

Jul 11, 2023Jul 11, 2023

DRIVERS have been left stunned by a car feature that could make their lives a bit easier when it comes to keeping vehicles clean.

Modern cars come with a trove of handy technology, no matter the manufacturer.

Most drivers are aware of nozzles that squirt windshield washer fluid onto your front window so your wipers can clean it.

Depending on the model of your car, you might have a secret button or feature that will help keep headlights clean, too.

Washer fluid flows out of nozzles on the front of cars to rinse headlights for higher visibility on the road as dirt, mud, or bugs can dim the lights.

To activate the headlight washing feature, turn on your brights then pull the wiper lever next to your steering wheel toward you, radio station KFI AM reports.

By pulling the lever and holding it there for a few seconds, the nozzles will spray washer fluid onto the headlights.

Depending on the automaker, some vehicles have a dedicated button to activate those washers.

Or, sometimes those washers will turn on automatically when the windshield washers are activated.

To find out whether your car has this feature, check out the very front of your car.

If you see rectangular shaped cut-outs underneath the headlights, there's a good chance your car has the feature.

To triple check that your car has headlight washers, take a look at your vehicle's owner's manual.

Though, this isn't the only hidden feature taking the internet by storm.

Recently, Instagram user @chequanlaosi shared a video showing a trick that opens the trunk from the inside in the event that you were trapped.

Another trick published to TikTok showed a safety feature in a car's key fob.

By pressing the lock and unlock button at the same time, all doors will lock except for the driver's door.
