    Default Wiper problems - front and rear 2004 1.8 sri

    I know there's a few good threads and how to's covering this but I have problems with front and rear wipers on a 2004 1.8 sri.

    Front: Washer doesn't work, it seems to work for once when the car turn on from cold, then it won't work again.

    Intermittent doesn't work. When I press up once on the stalk it just puts the wipers to a normal always on movement.

    Single sweep (pulling down on stalk) doesn't work. When I pull down the wipers will only move if I keep the stalk held down, when I release it wipers stop dead, they don't return home.

    Rear: Rear wiper does not function at all. When I push stalk towards engine nothing happens, rear washer does work though. When I pull it back it does seem to make the beep noise but there is zero movement from rear wiper. Changed fuse in boot but haven't tried anything else yet.

    Is it possible the two problems are not related? For the front issue I've read the thread about doing a fix on the motor but the rear wiper problem is putting me off starting this.

    I've also read somewhere that the CIM could be causing both problems.

    Anyone had these exact symptoms? Also can anyone tell me where the wiper relays are located?

    Thanks in advance for any help you can give.

    Vehicle : Mk1 renault scenic... I know I know but it drives

    Trim : Basic

    Engine : 1.6 16v

    Year : 2003

    Default

    Sounds like one I had in work required a new CIM to be fitted.

    try finding someone local with tech2/ op com to view the data from CIM to check that is seeing signal from the switch.

    If it is the CIM, can I replace it with a 2nd hand one from any scrapped vectra or will it have to be the same model? Is the ignition system a part of the CIM too?
