Wiper Issue

Post by Tim Leech »

The intermittent wipe and self park on the tzd have stopped working although the washers and normal wipe works... but doesn't self park.

Fuse or relay or maybe a stalk?

Thanks

Could be the switch or maybe corrosion in the connector at the motor or the parking switch in the motor.

If this is a series2 I would suspect the Wiper relay.

On the fuse box? There is certainly a clicking sound on mine when on intermittent.
