1996 300 Windscreen wipers

Mean Green

Recommended Posts

Can anyone tell me if the windscreen wipers on a 1996 Disco is controlled by an ECU?

Mine are playing up at the moment. When I first got it the intermittant did not work at all. Suddenly one day it worked fine and was OK for about 2 weeks. Now, they do not always stop when you switch off the wipers. I need to give the screen a wash and then after the 4 sweeps it stops again.

Could this be an ECU fault or just a dodgy switch?

It appears from my copy of the Haynes Manual that the wipers do go through the multi-function unit (which is behind the glove box). Why they couldn't just use relays, I don't know.... <_<

I'm told that the mfu has a habit of losing bits of solder for the electric window control, so I would assume the same could happen for the wipers.
