    confused Windscreen Wipers

    Good evening to everyone on this chilly friday eve.

    My wipers have been driving me crazy today they seem to have a mind of there own,you know folks one of those days when its not raining or snowing fast enough to have wipers set on second setting,but on my 2.0dti the itermittent wipers sometimes work,and sometimes dont.
    The switch on the stalk has the small wheel thing,but it does not do what its supposed to do.
    When i got home tonight i sprayed a small amount of contact cleaner on it,still no go.i'm wondering if it's anything to do with the rain sensesor or what ever,or if at all it has one,?anyone with the same prob or just my jinxed luck.

    Thanks for any advice.

    Stupid question i know but did you have them set on auto wipers?
    I got the same prob on mine, i set them on auto, they work fine for a couple of mins then they go balistick.
    Also check behind the cowling at the back of the mirror to see if the sensor is plugged in or not.
    Easy to get off, just hold it and pull apart.

    autowipe is the first option with the wheel being the frequency, sometimes its great and sometimes its not - it depends on the type of rain.....lol

    the second option is fixed.

    the third option is fast as hell..........

    A similar question if you please.

    In the handbook of my 07 Vectra Elite it states that when you do a windscreen wash the wipers will operate for about four times then after a pause it will give an extra wipe, well mine doesn't, anyone knows if it should?

    Yhanks,

    Gordon.
