I'm a new 20 Clarity Touring owner. This is my first thread that will provide information (rather than a question, though I'll have plenty of those, too). Although many people don't know (or don't care), it is the law in California and many other states that if you have your windshield wipers on, you must also have your headlights on. Daytime running lights (DRLs) definitely do NOT meet this requirement because DRLs do not turn on your taillights. Your lights are required to be on for visibility, so your rear lights must be on, too. It's a safety issue. (I'll climb off my soapbox for the rest of this post.) Luckily, the Clarity (at least the 20 Touring version) has a setting called "Auto Headlights on When Wipers On." If you turn this setting on, whenever you turn on your windshield wipers, your headlights will come on, and you will be in compliance with the law (and safer). I wanted to turn this feature on and test it. At first, it seemed it wasn't working. I'd turn on my wipers, and my headlights didn't turn on. I spent about 30 minutes experimenting with it, and I found out that your headlights don't come on instantly when you turn your wipers on. And they don't come on after a set amount of time with your wipers on. Interestingly, they come on after your wipers do five swipes. So, if you turn your wipers on high, they come on in about 10 seconds (there is a slight delay after the fifth swipe). But, if you turn your wipers on the lowest intermittent setting, it takes your lights almost a minute to turn on. Another interesting thing I noticed is that after your lights come on like this, they stay on even if you turn your wipers off. I shut off my wipers and waited a few minutes multiple times, and my headlights remained on. Apparently they stay on until you turn your car off. I know some of you may think this is an odd thing to be so concerned with, but the law is there for a reason. I knew a kid whose father got killed in the rain in a situation where, if the driver had had his headlights on, the wreck would have likely never occurred. On another level, it's a moving violation and will go against your insurance (just like not having your headlights on at night).
