Do Not Sell My Personal Information

Front wipers come on by themselves without any selection

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone.


Yesterday whilst driving home from work yesterday my Windscreen wipers developed a life of their own and started with no selection made. I have an 09 plate S Max 2.0 TDi. They would operate and seem to get faster. Operation of the stalk made no difference to anything. I even pulled over and turned the ignition off and pulled out the key, but they continued to operate once I started the jorney again. Before I start having  alook and pulling things apart I wanted to ask if anyone else has had this problem and how was it resolved?

Probably water ingress in the alarm battery back up sounder connector. 

Or even water ingress in the fusebox in passenger footwell. 

Check the fusebox and connectors first as it's only a 5 min job .

Basically one of the canbus circuits may be interfering with the wiper module from another module( alarm system etc)
