*Ice Park Wiper Mode. At least on the 2013+ Leaf, the wipers can be "parked" automatically so they are vertical on the windshield, instead of horizontal at the base of it. This allows for much easier de-icing of the blades, and also prevents a lot of ice and snow buildup during Winter Storms. Turn the car off as usual, and then within 30 seconds, pull the wiper stalk toward you and release it, as if to activate the washer function. With the car off, the wipers will instead move into vertical position and stop.
The above is of course from LeftieBiker and the original post in the thread. It is an opportune time to draw attention to this in particular, with my story being that last night I was racking my brain trying to remember this tip (I ended up just manually putting up the wiper arms, disgracefully low-tech), and just now I was going in reverse through the thread looking for it, and there it was in the first post. Ha.
I am wondering, though (even though I certainly can and will find out for myself): Does this maneuver lock the arms in position until the car is started again? The winds last night made wonder if they were going to blow the wipers back down. (They didn't.)
