    Default Stuck rear windscreen wiper

    Evening.

    On my Vectra SRI to operate the rear windscreen wiper you push the right hand stalk away from you once to wipe and hold it to wash and wipe. When i push it once it wipes fine but then seems to be stuck on intermittent and keeps wiping every 30 seconds or so.

    The only way i can stop it is by turning the engine off and it resets.

    Any advice? Happened to anyone else?

    Cheers

    I take it you are pushing it a second time to turn it off again?

    Push away from you once to activate, then release it. Then push away from you again to cancel it. On the second push you should hear a sort of "click" as you do it.

    Exactly as Puppet said. There is an audible click to deactivate the rear wiper. You will also notice that if you have the front wipers on and put the car in reverse that the rear wiper wipes automatically.
