2002 audi a4, wiper running

My girlfriends car has an issue where the wipers run constantly even when they are not switched on, but this occurs only when it is very cold out. She had this looked at before and she was told it was due to her not cleaning off all of teh snow, and the wipers needing to push this. She assures me this is not the case. She bought the car used, and is very diligent about the care for the car, and felt she was getting the run around.

Any thoughts you might have would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Audi a4 wipers only work on fast the switch wasent working even when turned off they kept going fast now they have stopped working compelely


I have a idea you can try because it has worked for me befors.
The switches on volkswagen as well as audi are very small on a micro switch level.
any spill or moisture can cause them to stick or fail.
I have tried different things to clean them so the switches would work again, the best thing I've used id starting fluid sold at your local wallmart.
Just spray the switch while at the same time move and click the problem switch.
Try to work in the fluid into the switch.
Starting fluid has either in it and it dries almost on contact but it cleans like nothing you have ever used before,should be able to clean whatever materal could be causing the switch to fail.
Good luck,Gary

Windsheid wpier stop wirking in Audi A4 1999


How to change a wiper assembly & repair wiper mechanism on 1999 Audi A4

First time you must diagnose why windscreen wipers going slow and/or stopping.
In order to find out the cause of wipers stopping you can try follows:

1. Carefully extract the wiper arms from their axles (two pieces). In some cases you need to use an extracting tool. Heed of the windscreen !!!
2. Disassemble the plastic covers from the bottom of the windscreen.
3. With the bonnet up you can start the engine, (transmission in "N" or "P" position and parking brake on). Now you must switch on the control lever of the wipers, and go to the engine compartment. If the wiper motor runs let the wiper motor running for a few minutes and switch off. Go to the step 4. If the wiper motor do not runs you must check first the electrical feeding of the motor. It is necessary to unscrew three bolts of the mechanism and disconnect the electrical coupling (difficult assurance). If the electrical feeding is OK you must replace the motor - steps 5, 6, 7. If not you must check electrical connections, the control switch of wipers and electric cables.
4. Now you must check the two bearings of wiper mechanism with your hand. In the most cases the left bearing is out of order (is very hot). This is the most encountered fault of the wipers running at Audi.
5. For have enough space to manipulation the wiper motor together with their mechanism you must extract the plastic cover of the engine computer box, and extract also the box screws. Then you can move slowly the engine computer box, just for a few milimeters.
6. You must disconnect the electrical coupling of the motor (difficult assurance), unscrew three bolts of the mechanism and extract together with the motor. You must move them slowly between windscreen and engine computer box until the wiper motor go out together with the mechanism. This is the most difficult operation!
7. Now you can repair the bearings, replace entire wiper mechanism or replace the wiper motor. It is not very simply, but it works.
Heed of the windscreen !!!
Refit all in reverse order.

02 audi a4 quattro wipers won't park


If you can move the wiper arms by hand then the 13mm bolt on the motor has worked loose, remove the plastic windscreen trim under the bonnet , close the bonnet , then operate the wiper motor for 1 cycle , switch off , open the bonnet , loosen the 13 mm nut on the wiper motor , push wipers down to the park position , tighten 13mm nut up , close bonnet then check wiper operation , they should now park in the correct position .

2001 Audi A4 Windshield Wiper Issues....Work on their own


The most likely cause of your symptoms is the wiper motor parking relay has become faulty, however there is a slim possibility the connections within your wiper switch could be an issue, but the relay would be my first and cheepest line of enquiry. Contact your local VAG dealer and expect to pay somewhere in the region of £15. Good luck
