Well, likewise, I LOGICALLY concluded that the windshield wiper on the steering wheel column operated the windshield wipers!!!
As others found, there is ANOTHER switch off to the left, not really identified. Voila!!! All of that cussing, texting to the salesman, calling the service and Thor, wiggling, jiggling the fuses for nothing!! I read all of the manuals, but nothing indicated this windshield wiper switch alternative.
Now, just curious, what DOES the column wiper switch operate? Anything?
Doesn't matter. All is well...for now!! Thanks to all for the input!!
