Teh wipers on my 2000 528 will stop working once in a while. Its seems as if they will keep working in the on position but if I use the manual intermittantly they will stop. seem to work when cold and seems to stop after they have been on for awhile.
Any suggestions before I order a new wiper motor?
Can you predict when they are going to stop working? If you can, then make them stop working, turn the ignition off (park first), then try them again immediately to see if they are still not working, to me it sounds more like some part of the electronics is faulty rather than the wiper motor itself.
found a utube vid on finding the wiper relay and i took the relay apart, filed the two sets of points and works like a charm. I will order a new one anyway though. thanks for your input folks. hope this helps someone else.
