Auto wipers have a mind of their own! They carry on working when it stops raining! Won't turn off on the stork or will stop mid wiping? What could be causing this fault? Or anyone had the same problem?? Thanks! :confused:

I had this problem when I first bought the car - then realised that the previous owner had fitted wiper blades for a car without rain sensors - so worth checking that your wiper sweeps over the sensor (apologies if I'm stating the obvious)

Since it still doesn't stop when you try to turn them off then it won't be wrong size wipers. Sounds more like an intermittent short or something.

Wiper issue

Hi everyone, I have the same issue. Even when i have select to switch off the wiper on the stork, the wipers do not turn off, and then randomly turn off in the middle of the screen.

Please can someone assist me with the fault. thank you very much.

I've got this problem too. Had a look at the 'remove and clean' process. Looks a real pain in the arse to be honest. A lot of work to remove the thing and then to clean the metal contacts inside you have to 'break' apart the casing and then 'fix' it back together?

I just bought a brand new motor off a well known on-line auction site for an unbelievable price, talking 2 digits ££, brand new, original part. We'll see when it arrives :-s. Will pay local garage a couple of hours labour to fit the thing. Should solve the problem... hopefully.

To be honest, it's not a difficult job. If you can fit a new one you can clean the old one. When I took mine out I didn't need to break anything. I just swished around a load of white spirit for about twenty seconds under the disc then emptied and did it again, job done. That was in November and wipers have been fine ever since. Not sure where you got the breaking the casing bit...

Still, getting a new wiper motor for cheap is good.

Yeah I know, hopefully it fixes the issue and I'll have proper well behaved wipers again! lol
Maybe I could try and clean the old motor and sell it on, or sell it on as a working motor that needs cleaned.
It was this thread that mentioned having difficulty getting the pink casing off without breaking some plastic pin... http://www.civinfo.com/forum/electronics/47574-window-wiper-problem-4.html
