    Default has this happened to anybody else ??????

    Windscreen wiper limp mode???
    Stange one this, This has happened several times now, when its frosty (outside temp below 3 deg) the front wipers sort of go into limp mode(best way to describe it lol). The washers don't operate, wipers run continuously on rainsense mode and manual wipe loses its park function (eg wipers stop mid wipe when stork released). Once out side temp is above 3 deg and engine is stopped and restarted all returns to normal...anyone had this before? And if by any strange chance that it is some strange feature (to stop damage to wipers if frozen up) can it be removed.

    im very confused, but yes mine did the same thing on wednesday morning.

    expecially noticed the rainsense mode on full power...

    i think the sensor senses the ice as rain and just keeps on motoring.

    I had exactly the same happen yesterday morning after a particularly cold night (-6deg), as you say the washers don't operate and wipers run continuously and you cant park them. I was on the way down to the local dealers, but about 10 mins into the trip normal service was resumed, so just put it down to the temp.

    the motors dont run on the washer or just no water coming out (could be frozen water?)

    Not had this on mine but driving over to Walsall yesterday the car said it was -3 degrees outside. I couldnt use any screenwash until i was halfway to walsall because, even though i had a bit of anti-freeze in my washer bottle, it was all frozen.

    No the waters not frozen its the wipers that dont respond to the input from the stalk, and wont park but stop instantly in the position they are in.


    Does that make any sense??
