Strange wiper operation

So, I had the front wipers on intermittent and the back one off. It was raining slightly at the time. I noticed that, without being switched on , the rear wiper made about 5 passes and then stopped. Has anyone else noticed this ?

Re: Strange wiper operation

Usually does this after a rear wash wipe. Then a final single wipe after a delay.

It will also do an uncommanded rear wipe if the front wipers are on and you select reverse.

Re: Strange wiper operation

Did you touch the rear wash wipe?

Sometimes fumbling in the dark especially you want to change the wiper speed or turn it from intermittent to "on" etc, instead of getting the right part of the stalk, your hand (or mine at least) occasionally taps the stalk away from me (activating the rear wash wipe, as mentioned above).

Re: Strange wiper operation

Hatch wiring starting to play up possibly, worth checking.

Re: Strange wiper operation

I already have the repair kit ready. But, unless it happens again, I won't do anything for the moment.

Does sound a little odd.

In my experience..a randomly switched rear wiper will run for
Ahem.. 'quite some time' ...
