    Default Wiper Fault

    I have been digging around the net and even shelled out for a Haynes in an attempt to find fault with Wiper.

    Vectra C - 07

    Wiper Fault:

    Intermittent - No wipers
    Normal Speed - No Wipers
    Fast Speed - Wipers but no stop unless manual stop (its an art)
    Screen wash - only in fast speed and when wipers are moving.

    I have dug around relays and checked fuses, haven't dug in about the wiper motor.

    Any ideas on possible problem?

    Park sensor, Faulty motor, corrosion at motor plug?

    Any assistance would be very much appreciated.

    Stevie

    Wiper motor, as it isn't parking properly, it's likely theres a dirty connector inside the motor.

    Are there not two wiper motor relays in the under-hood electrical centre (UEC) - engine fuse box?

    I am sure that I have read a long time a go that one of the two relays failing, would give the very symptoms that you describe.

    There are two of the same relay in the fuse/relay box.
    Sswapped them round and no change, that was my first guess was sticky relay.

    Is it easy enough to change the stalk, I was thinking of picking one up at scrappy / eBay before shelling out for a motor.

    Not parking, not working in intermittent or slow and jet was no op until you set fast speed.

    Hmm - have you done the basic electrical reset?

    Disconnect the car battery for 15 minutes or so..
    then reconnect the battery.

    If it is just an electrical glitch, then this usually sorts the issue

    This error occurs quite often on the Vectra due to the number of communications and modules involved in running the car.

    For those with half-CAN vehicles, make sure that you have you car pass number for the radio before you pull the battery.

    Always a bit **** scared about removing battery connections from a Can operated car, simply for issues like the radio for one.
    I have a classic mini with virtually no electronics and can handle a power down.

    I will give the stalk a go, then dig about motor for possible corrosion at connections then go for a disconnect before shelling out for a wiper motor.

    Defo not the stalk. New one arrived this morning.
    Swapped out the suspect one and no difference.

    If the suns out tomorrow I will have a dig about the motor.
