Windscreen Wipers Not Working

11 January 2015 - 08:06 PM

Hi Everyone

Bit of an odd one. 

I turned on the car today and used it for a couple of short trips after is had been sat for 3 days. When I went to try and clear the windscreen of water I found that the Windscreen wipers won't move! 

When I move the stalk I hear a click coming from the relay and I checked the fuse which was fine. 


I think it might be the battery as when I checked it it only had 14v coming off of it (I thought it should be 16v coming from it?) 

Everything else in the car works fine how ever, including rear wiper and washers. Lights (dipped, high and sidelights) radio, interior lights, central locking (well sort of its been dodgy for a while as the remote only seems to work when it wants to other wise I have to put the key in the door). The car starts fine straight away and when I was driving it was driving fine.


Can anybody help?! Typical its today it chooses to misbehave as I start a new job tomorrow and its forecast to rain!

Actually its raining out there now :(  


Any help would be much appreciated! 



Odometer Light Not Switching Off

23 February 2014 - 07:44 PM

So I have recently noticed that the backlight for my Odometer (trip computer etc) screen does not turn off when I have the keys out of the ignition and lock the car. I wondered if anyone else has come across this? I'm a a little worried it could make the car a magnet in dark car parks etc. 


I have recently changed the light in my vanity light to an LED bank which I've noticed also doesn't turn off straight away but does eventually. Also it is on but dim when driving at night (much like an unintentional mood light) 


Could it be to do with this light? Is there a way to get it to work properly?
