    Hi, we need help as we are away on a CCC meet at Eggborough power station.
    On driving to Eggborough yesterday it started to rain a little and Bob turned the wipers on but nothing happened. (luckily the rain didn't come to much)
    We have tried all the fuses today to see if blown in all the fuse boxes, also we got no washers neither.
    Any advice on what else we could try, could it be the wiper relay?
    Let's hope it does'nt rain tomorrow when we got to drive home

    I think the next step would check the connection on the switch, the plug might have come off, I have known it to happen on the light switch. :eek: Bob.

    Test the fuse with a meter.....dont rely on a visual inspection as fuses can blow but look ok.

    Both wipers and washers gone sounds like supply to stalk. When washers are activated they also trigger the wipers. Personally I would start at the stalk end.

    Well called the AA man, checked all fuses, power is live everywhere but no power to the wiper motor, AA man also said it could be the stork or management not telling wipers to work.
    AA man was frustrated he could not fix it after trying for nearly 2 hours.
    Well at least it's not raining today so driving home now, will have to get autoelectrician to check out why wipers not working

    take a live feed to the wiper motor to check the motor is ok.
    get a DECENT sparky to check if there is power out of the stalk switch
    one of these is helpful
