1996 gtv 2.0 ts

Alarm,Not all doom and gloom

Hi people,
Bought a GTV 2.0 ts 1996 yesterday, mighty fine beast it is too.
Got it home and found the wipers not working at all on intermittent, waser not working(no pump noise) and wiper only works on full tilt, when i switch the wipers off at the stalk, it stops on the windscreen like i have turned off the ignition,i am currently looking at this problem with the help of the forum.
And the good news
My central locking and alarm would not activate at all when i got it, i have the square key fob version. So aftre reading the many articles here, checked everything and it was all there like it said.
lights on the keyfob worked, so i just assumed it was u/s until i had a look inside the key fob.
The infrared led have departed company with the circuit board,2 mins later with the help of a little heat,Hey presto, working fine.
hope this is of help to someone.
got another prob with the temp gauge or thermostat, but one thing at a time
looking forward to many years of ***** driving

that fob'll keep doing that until you won't be able to fix it one day. Just hope it's not armed like mine was, cos it makes you deaf ripping the swine out!
