A continuous wiper puzzle....
Have a strange one that I would very much like some assistance with.
Alfa 147 2003 1.6TS lusso. Recently, and suddenly all wipers front and rear, squirters front and rear ceased working. A quick check of the fuses, 30a fuse blown. Listed as rear squirters in the book I think. Replaced fuse, but now only continuous fast wipers. Will not switch off so long as engine running. Have driven to work for a week now with regular "fuse in fuse out" stops when it rains.
I've tried :
Fuses, checked / inspected / replaced.
Relays, swapping over, testing.
New motor and linkage, completely replaced.
Visual check on wiring / connections.
So, am I right in thinking that this is a fault with my control stalk? Just seems very odd for it to suddenly go. Doesn't look like a day at the beach to replace, so I would very much appreciate it if any of you good folk could suggest something I'm overlooking here...?
Many thanks in advance for your time,
