Windshield Wiper and Washers

You can access wiper settings by touching the wiper button on the steering wheel or by touching Controls > Wiper.

Press and quickly release the wiper button on the steering wheel to wipe the windshield. If the wiper is already operating at a wiper setting and is not set to Auto, pressing the wiper button cycles through speeds. Wiper speeds cycle as follows: I > II > III > IIII > III > II > I.

Press and hold the wiper button to spray washer fluid onto the windshield. After releasing the button, the wipers perform two additional wipes then, depending on vehicle and environmental conditions, a third wipe a few seconds later. You can also press and hold the wiper button for a continuous spray of washer fluid—the wipers perform the wipes after you release.

      The Auto setting is currently in BETA. If uncertain about using the Auto setting while in the BETA phase, Tesla recommends operating the wipers manually, as necessary.
Choose to heat the wiper blade by touching the windshield icon on the touchscreen.

While driving in the rain, the wiper blade may pause in the horizontal position for approximately 30 seconds before continuing to wipe the windshield. The blade may also move slightly based on vehicle speed to make Cybertruck more aerodynamic.

Periodically check and clean the edge of the wiper blade. If a blade is damaged, replace it immediately. For details on checking and replacing the wiper blade, see Windshield Wiper Blade, Jets and Fluid.
