R / S Plate 2ltr GTV electrical issues HELP

Hello one and all I come cap in hand, My father bought a very nice 2ltr Gtv off a friend of mine last year and up until now its been a wonderfull car.
First problem that occured was the battery started going flat, we replaced the battery and seemed to sort the issue for a while and then same problem returned when left more that a couple of days, tried making sure that stereo was off and disconnect CD multiloader in boot but still had issues, not too much of a prob as it gets used pretty much every day.
Second problem the wipers started working by themselves at random even when off and then packed up all together, was advised to replace the motor which we did....still no wipers no evidence of water intrusion on old one.
Now the high beam lights have packed up, apart from that all is fine.

Would appreciate any input or advice didnt know if either of these faults are common with any common fixes.

Maybe check your earth connections, then the alternator & belts. If something stops working, always check that power is reaching what is supposed to be working. Otherwise you'll replace things that are fine and waste loads of cash. Other than that get a good auto electrician to check the car out. could be cheaper in the long run. Good luck.

In respect of the wipers, do a forum search on "N14". It's the wiper controller that lives near the fusebox. The search will tell you all about it and where to find it.
