2LT TS Spider

Help Wipers not working for 1st 10 minutes!

Can any help ?

I own a 2000 2lt TS Spider and recently the wipers do not start for the first 10 minutes in the mornings after starting the engine, its seems to be connected with the weather, ie damp or raining over night.
I had this problem when i first bought the car back in 2000 and the dealer sorted the problem!
I have also found a site stating that there was a recall for a fault with wipers, could this be it?
Electrics are a bit of a pain but hopefully someone can point me in the right direction.
I suspect its the motor, but could be the switch, but who knows? Do you....

Re: Wipers not working for 1st 10 minutes!

Certainly an odd one ! The obvious thing would seem to be a loose/poor connection but this doesn't really match the symptoms you have. Sorry I cant be of more help but never heard of this one before.

Shortly after getting mine I had a problem when the wash wipe wouldn't stop until I switched the ignition off, since then it's been fine so presume it was an electronic glitch but again this doesn't match your symptoms.

Hope someone comes along with more positive suggestions for you. Good luck and let us know what the snag was when you find it.
