They are activated on the first use of the washer since the lights were put on / came on automatically. Subsequently, it is as you say every 3rd use.

I'm talking about something different though. If you only pull the washer momentarily (less than about 1/4 sec), it will never trigger the headlamp washers.

It takes a bit of practice... You can get just as much water onto the windscreen with three short bursts as you can by holding it down, but without triggering the headlamp washer.

Give it a try.
