Wipers and sidelights with ignition

Post by paulrdavis »

I have a November 2001 2.0SE 206cc that has developed an odd fault. With ignition on the sidelights and wipers at speed 1 cannot be switched off. Wipers will run at speed 2 if instructed and headlights if instructed. I have checked the battery voltage, had the BSI checked, had the Com2000 checked and the rain sensor disconnected. I have swapped the BSM unit...all to no avail. Any ideas? Could it be the wiper motor?

I think it could be the wiper motor, if the self-parking contact is not opening the circuit when the arm achieves the park position ( I'm assuming the contact is in the motor). It may be that the contact is adjustable and just needs a tweak.

Otoh, I can't see what the sidelights would have to do with it.

Ian, thank you for your comment. I will remove and check the linkage and motor for any adjusters. If not I will source a motor from my local recyclers (A1 Spares) as they have a fresh 206cc where I bought the BSM for £20. Regards, Paul.
