Before spending money on parts, open the hood and find the wiper mechanism. You will see a place where the wires go into it. disconnect wires. (battery too) remove cover plate. Under plate you will see a circuit board. Try removing and reinstalling board. This some times cleans the contacts and gets it working.

The windshield wipers on my 1994 S 300 mercedes diesel work intermittently then quit and start up again seems like they are ready to crash for good. how do i repair so they work when needed?


1) It is normal for the wipers, in rain sensor mode, to cycle once upon startup.

2) In rain sensor mode, the wipers should be intermittent with the cycles increasing as the volume of moisture increases on the windshield. The speed will increase until it reaches the continuous slow speed of position 2 on the switch. It will not increase to the fastest speed which is position 3 on the switch. You have to go to the fastest speed by manually rotating the switch to postion 3. Doesn't seem like a design flaw to me.

I had the same problem. I replaced the crank shaft position sensor and it solved my problem. It would stall at intersections and while under light acceleration. It also caused loss of cruise control and a stutter when at highway speeds. Replaced crank sensor and its been running solid for 5,000 miles. $125 fix self installed.

Mercedes c230 windshield wiper starts on its own


Car has rain sensing windshield.Most likely you have the wiper on/off level in the intermittent position,which turns on the sensor. When the sensor detects moisture or even dust sometimes. It turns on wipers. Just make sure the wipers are off and not in the intermittent position.

Wipers do not work in intermittent position. They do work in low and high speeds but do not automatically return to the park position. They stop wherever you turn the switch off.


i belive that your wiper switch has gone out on the intermittent side. this is a very common problem.
I hope this helps you
Thanks
