on the BMW there is an electronic control module that controls all of these functions, sounds like you have a problem with it. Check your fuses, if non are blow there are dealers on e bay that can repair it for around the £70 mark. I have a similar problem with my 3 series

there are several things that can cause the wipers in your car not to work. if you have verified the fuses are good and verified power to your wiper motor, I would try disconnecting the negative battery cable for 15 minutes, then checking operation of the wipers. by the way, which fuses did you check?

I just had this problem and took the car back as I had just bought it. They told me there was a build up of sludge in the washer bottle that had blocked the pipes. They cleaned the pipes and the washer bottle out and it's working like new now!!

Locate the blower and get a volt meter and an ohm meter. If the motor has two wires coming off it you will need to check two things, the first is for voltage. If the vehicle needs to be running for the blower to work then start it and turn the switch on its highest setting. Set your multimeter on DC voltage of 20 volts if its a manual meter.Touch the black probe of the meter to a ground, be it an exposed bolt or the outside ring of your cigarette lighter/power adapeter, just make sure you don't short the center contact in it. Check for 12-15 volts coming off either wire, if you don't see any voltage to either wire then its possible the switch is bad, and try again by using a different ground. Carefully test both wires using the DC volts setting to verify votage and ground off the wires. If you get a reading then your motor is bad and needs to be replaced.
