    I noticed my rear Wiper, rear window heater strips, and Rear wiper fluid sprayer aren't working -
    I recently replaced my battery-is there something special I need to do to reset these gadgets?

    Double check to make sure your rear window is up all the way. I did that once and it took a minute to realize I did that because it was only down a quarter inch and wasn’t easily visible.

    Until I got my forerunner, I never owned a vehicle with a rear wiper.
    And, I don't ever see a situation where I would ever use it.
    But then, I live in california.
    Maybe it works for snow?

    Yes read your owner's manual, but basically you need to reinitialize your windows any time you disconnect the battery or your battery dies, you have to do this with your driver's door window, your hatch window and sun roof if you have one, basically you roll down the window and then roll it back up and hold the switch in the up position for a few seconds, do this for all I mentioned above and it all should be working correctly again, but as stated read your owner's manual as I might have the "how-to" described slightly wrong or maybe I remembered it correctly, I never know for sure since I have CRS!(Can't Remember Shit)

    Thank you so much. I did lower the window a bit and raised it back and now everything is working-who knew?
