Question about Audi A4
That sounds to me like a problem with the switch, or a relay (not a capacitor). Try replacing the switch on the stalk and see if the issue goes away. You can check the voltage and test at the motor to see what signal is being sent to the wiper motor.

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

give the mottor a few taps and spray wd40 in it if you can it releases things thats stuck. also make sure all movable parts are moving freeely. sounds silly but can catch on things. cables are not squashed and the like.

I had this problem two years ago on my Audi A4. First you must diagnose this problem. 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 encounter 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 in reverse order. Please Rate my Response! Thanks!
