    If the interior lights are also not working then you probably recently had to charge or replace the battery. Some BMWs really don't like low voltage electrical systems. So if you have a problem with the wipers, central locks (except it works from the key in the door) and interior lights then you need the general module repaired.

Central locking system

Sounds like this car was under water...????

Not knowing the year is a down point.!

I would remove and check all fuse block relays and switches. Both under the hood in engine area and under the dash.
If it was me, I would bring it to a auto electrical shop and have them check to system.

Wind screen wipers and central locking on x 5 suddenly don't work on x5 (rear wipers still work )

you may have two problems or they are both related, the first step would be to check all your fuses, then if fuses are good then test for power at motor to see if the motor is bad or the switch, you will need a test light to do this, turn power on to wipers and then test for power at motor.
