1998 E46 318i Wiper Wont Stop

G'Day guys,

The story starts this morning got into the car and as if guided by ghostly hand the windscreen wipers came on and despite the "stalk" being in the off position they wouldn't stop,no matter which position I switched it to and back to the off position they (wipers) kept going.

I checked the fuse(s) and all good.I disconnected the battery to delete any faults to no avail.

So in the meantime I've take the relay out (which appears to be doing what it is supposed to) to stop the wipers running dry.The washer pump works fine (with the relay out).

Anybody come across something like this before and if yes, what was it? No work whatsoever has been done on the electrical system to cause this so I'm well you guessed it a bit stumped.

I would hazard a guess lies between the stalk and the relay... I would certainly suspect the stalk's contacts/connections (dodgy stalk?).

Thanks mate,will keep looking. Just an elimination process without a full diagnoses and even then could still be guess work.
