97_540i is an unknown quantity at this point
(Thread Starter)
Need help. Wipers stopped working. Started troubleshooting...pulled fuse (F1) in glove box checked good. Put it back in and wipers worked for a week and quit again. Checked fuse again ...no change. Went to check relays K36/K37 under hood on passenger side. My service manual does not show these two relays. I believe they are the purple ones. (P/N 61-36-1-388-911). Can someone tell me which one is above K94 and K11? When I switch places with these two relays I can get the wiper to work. Switch back they stop working. (Bad Relay). Two days later I bought a new relay and tried to figure which one is bad and now I can't get the wipers to fail. Anyone run into this problem or have any inputs.

Thanks,
97_540i

Does yours have a rain sensor?
My intermittent speed is not working coz' of the rain sensor. Either the rain sensor $180 parts alone) needs to be replaced or the relay. I haven't had it checked out at the shop coz' I don't use my wipers much, rely on RainX most of the time.

here's some diagrams that should help from the Bentley manual

I would say, if you can't get it to fail now it might just have been a bad connection between the relay pins and their sockets. I've seen it before.
