Hello Alfa Fans! :p

Hopefully someone will be able to advise on this very irritating issue which has cropped up, albeit intermittently, over the past week!

When I start the 156 2.4 JTD engine, my wipers come on and stay on constantly. The amount of time they are on seem to range from 30 seconds to 5 mins - and there seems no prompt temporary fix when restarting engine! This has occurred on 4 seperate occassions now, and there seems to be no relation to other electrics which might be turned on (which work fine themselves, such as lights, HU etc).

Has anyone any idea what could be the cause of this? It's especially embarrassing on sunny days, as you can imagine!

Sounds like a short somewhere in the motor. It contains all of the park and speed control gubbins inside. If you take it apart you may be able to clean it up but you probably need a new one. Unless there is better info out there.

Thanx for the suggestion Red - though hope it doesn't have to come to that because it seems like another problem to add to a recently growing list...!

Any other suggestions on this anyone?
