I think that the wipers automatically comes on when you use the screen wash, so i can think of maybe four things that are causing this:

1. Dodgy switchgear in the stalk lever
2. Broken washer pump
3. Loose connection somewhere (maybe at the pump?)
4. Blown fuse

Check 3 and 4 first. Somebody may know of another issue...

Weird that the front wipers come on when you use the rear wash. Maybe points to dodgy switchgear, or maybe the car does this to signify that one of the other faults have occured

Washer stalk mate. I'll be surprised if it's anything else. About ten to fifteen quid from a scrappy
