If yours are like the rest in that series, the headlamp wipers operate only if either the parking or headlamps are turned in AND you cycle the windscreen washer. After the cycle, the wipers shut off. They do not operate continuously, as if they were miniature windscreen wipers

Teutonic efficiency at its finest. Why add another switch to the dashboard? You only need clean headlights when they're on, right? And logically, you only need to clean them when the windshield is dirty, too, right? Or at least that's what I suspect the engineers thought processes were.

This info is in the owner's manual. If you don't have one, call 1-800-FOR MERC and they will be delighted to sell you one!
