Here in Windsor, CT we know that soon we're going to have frosty windshields and snow on our vehicles, it's just a fact of life here. But, lucky for us, Ford vehicles such as the ones in our showroom offer plenty of standout quality and features that can help us. One such feature is the windshield wiper de-icer on select Ford vehicles, and today we're explaining how it works so you can use it to your benefit this winter.

The windshield wiper de-icer prevents your wipers from icing up, by using a heating element that warms it at the base of the windshield to keep snow and ice from building around the wipers so they won't freeze to the glass. It keeps the wipers pliable and allows them to make full contact with the glass so you can remove the ice and snow when it warms to water on your windshield and see clearly.

To activate it, press the rear defrost button in your car, or use the key fob and press the lock button along with the start 2x button which will automatically start your vehicle. If you have SYNC® Connect onboard, you can do it using the FordPass® app from your phone.

You can learn a lot more about the features on our new Ford vehicles here at Mitchell Selig Ford and if you have any other questions feel free to stop in and see us today as we'd be happy to provide details and answer any questions you might have.
