How the heck do you use the wiper controls for setting the delay?

If I hit it once, it is a very long delay. If I hit it twice, but, too fast it goes into constant slow.

For some reason my manuals don't have a smartwheel section.

Press the wipe once, it will wipe and park and will wipe again after a long pause. After the first press decide when you would like the next and press it then. It will now cycle at that frequency.

Thank you, thank you, thank you. I swear that is what I thought was happening, but, there is no way I imagined the electronics were that "smart" so to speak.

To be honest, I don't want to think that much. Just give me 3-4 settings and I'll adjust. Also, the volume of rain, getting behind a vehicle etc. all changes very fast. I don't want to have to calculate the time needed. My gosh, next thing you know I'll be held responsible for my own actions.

Scott, while on the Smart Wheel topic, you are aware of the high idle control using your cruise control. If not, just turn on the cruise while idling in neutral. Now press the "RES". The engine will increase RPM to just over 1000. You can adjust the speed by pressing and holding "RES" (high speed, or "SET" lower speed.
This is a good idea for extended idle periods as diesels don't like 750 RPM to long. Don't worry about forgetting and selecting "Drive" while the engine is idling above normal. The transmission is smart too. It will not engage and will flash the tranny display.
