BMW 1996 3 Series Touring Wipers will not stop/cancel

I have a BMW 1996 3 Series Touring and the wipers will not cancel. The wipers respond in all settings except from stop/cancel. The wipers come on as soon as the car is started. I have replaced the switch/stalk with a new one which initially worked and all was well, but then the same fault has returned. Any ideas?.

Try looking for the relay box and listen to each relay the one that clicks when the wipers are on
is the one to take out and replace it with a new one or second-hand one but make sure to turn off the car first .

Wipers wont go off


When you turn off the switch, there is a second switch in the wiper motor that continues to run the wipers until they are parked. If the window where that switch does not keep the wipers running is too narrow, the momentum of the motor turning will carry the wipers past the end of that window—they will continue until they are not-quite-parked. But not-quite-parked, in an absolute sense, is not parked at all, and that switch will reestablish contact, running the wipers to try to get them to the parked position.

Once there, the overrun happens again, and the cycle repeats.

Beyond that, if that switch gets stuck it will keep running the wipers, parked or not.

Sometimes the wiper motor can be easily accessed, opened up, and that switch can be serviced and properly adjusted. Sometimes the motor needs to be replaced.

Find the connector that runs the wipers, and disconnect it while the wipers are running. The blades will stop where they are.

intermittently, and briefly, reconnect the wipers trying to get them to move only 5 or 10 degrees at a time. This will avoid the motor get up a head of steam. If the wipers stop responding to this once they are parked, the window that the switch considers "parked" is too narrow. If they just keep responding to the application of power, even when they are really in the parked condition, then the switch has arced shut.

I have not seen a remote filter for these they are usually on the motor itself. Take the hose loose from the pump and see if it is actually pumping out water or is it just running. If it is pumping pretty strong trace the rubber tube up to the wipers and make sure there is no breaks in it anywhere.
