I have a 523i bmw and out of the blue the windscreen wipers stopped working. It is intermittent and they stop and start when they want to which makes driving in adverse weather quite difficult. Had a garage check it out thoroughly relay, wiring fuses etc but to no avail

2things it could be,the wiper motor,or the switch that turns them on,if power is going to switch and it doesn't work,then maybe switch,apply .You can always take switch or motor back if they there not the problem.

SOURCE: windshield wipers quit working on 2003 chevrolet trailblazer. relays and fuses are okay.

There were some issues with ignition switches in those vehicles.It is easy to change and does not cost but about $30. Remove the column covers, unplug the switch, and depress the 2 white tabs holding it in place. Good Luck

it's normal, windshield wipers in bmws are connected to the speedometer since the old E36 3series, so they stop whenever you stop your car. If they start again once the car moves there's nothing wrong with your car!

SOURCE: windscreen wiper on Mercedes C200 not working

you should check the connection to the main board and the connections to the motor for the wipers. these sometimes become gunked up, so when you pull them apart to check them clean them with sand paper or something that can scrub them like a green scratch pad

Why has my drivers windscreen wiper suddenly stopped working?


There is one motor driving both wiper arms. If one side has stopped and the other side still works, it is likely that the point there the are connects to the drive is stripped or slipped off. Check at the point where the driver side wiper arm is attached to the drive / pivot point

The wiper relay is a common cause of this failure. It is not very expensive and easy to replace. Search Google to find a replacement and instructions. Use these terms: e39 wiper relay

Toyota Camry intermittent windscreen wipers stopped working. Then all of the windscreen wipers stopped working. The fuse is OK. Model SXV10R. January 1996


this could be caused by a bad whiper motor or a bad whiper motor switch. check for voltage at the whiper motor itself, if you do have voltage at the motor then the motor is bad.

My windscreen wipers have stopped working but it was just an intermittent problem to start with and they usually started working again after a short drive. What might be the problem. I can't find the fuse...


Could be the solder cracked on the wiper circuit board. Mine did that once that was the problem.Prob. not a fuse but it should be some were around the side of the dash or maybe under dash at the steering wheel.

My windscreen wipers on my BMW mini are not working, I have checked fuses and they are ok. The rear wiper works ok. The washer works ok. Could this be down to cold weather or a problem with relay? regards...
