Question about 1999 Peugeot 206
Since replacing the battery the front window wipers wont turn off even with the ignition off
I can think of several possibilities:
1. When replacing the battery, some sort of shortcircuit might have occurrred messing up the fuses.
Solution: Refer to your user's manual to identify where the wipers' fuse is located and try replacing it.
2. As far as I'm concerned, a way to "reset" the computer in the car is disconnecting the battery, so the computer may have been reset with wrong parameters.
Solution: Have you tried disconnecting the battery for a couple of minutes? and plug it back?.
3. If your model has automatic wipers, try switching from auto to manual mode and viceversa.
4. When the battery on my 206 was almost worn out, the lights kept turning on after killing the switch, followed by a quick beeping (which normally indicates the power in the battery is draining). At first, I thought it was the switch of the headlamps, but after replacing the battery with a new one, the problem got solved. Maybe the battery you just put in is faulty?
Hope any of the above helps.
