wipers when using windshield wiper fluid

Is there a way to re-program the GEM so that when I shoot fluid that the wipers stop after 2-3 times? I hate it when it does the delay before the last time the wipers go on as it makes streaks... specially in winter!

yeah ford engineers failed big time there, makes 0 sense to have the wipers rub on a dry windshield

There is a delay before the last wipe of the wipers on 08's?

Thats awesome! I always have to "pump" my wipers an extra time after a few seconds to get the last bit of window juice off.

I want your feature! - seriously!

Wanna trade?

Funny cause my 04 ranger does not do that but my 03 focus does, I general can not stand it,

On a side note I have noticed if I put my wipers on the highest speed for a second then drop straight down to the timed delay it will wipe the windshield really fast during the time delay, odd glitch.

I thought it was cool at first but its really sucks during winter when you have cars in front of you spraying you with dirty water/slush...
