      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  1. Can it still be the relay if the problem is just with the front wipers? The back one is fine. When I turn the wipers on and they don't work I can hear this little "tk" sound, like something is trying to connect. Someone told me that if none of the wipers were working it would be an electrical fault, but if only the front or back ones weren't working it would be mechanical? I've had the car in with the mechanics, and they reconnected the wiper motor and did a bit of cleaning, but that didn't work. The problem is still occurring.
  2. I have an 09 reg Ford Ka, which has so far passed all MOTs and has had no problems. Recently (in the past 2 weeks or so) the front windscreen wipers have started to work strangely. Sometimes when I start the car and turn the windscreen wipers on, the front ones won't work. Other times they work fine when I initially turn them on, but then stop working of their own accord. I then have to turn them on and off, and adjust the wiper speed several times until they start again and this can take minutes. This does not alway happen, sometimes there are no problems at all, but I'd say there's a problem 60% of the times the wipers have to be used. There is no problem with the back wiper. It seems to be an electrical error, but what? Any help or clues is greatly appreciated. Thanks, Trine
