Rear Wiper Acting Up

The rear wiper is playing up inasmuch as EVERY time I turn on the ignition it goes through several wipes and then stops, sometimes vertical. On the stalk I can then turn it on and off to get it into a 'parked' position, it'll stop precisely when I switch it off.

My question is this, is there a solenoid somewhere that controls it? Or is it related to the stalk/switch?

It's 2010 Doblo (263) with a lift up tailgate.

Your help and comments are appreciated.

Re: Rear Wiper Acting Up

Hi

My suspicion is:

Wiring damage at the hatch hinge..

Powering up car .. (fuel pump maybe..) is giving it a brief burst of 12 volts

SEARCH 'maybelline' on here for more info



Good luck..and do let us know what you find

Thanks for the info.

I forgot to mention that the rear number plate light bulbs aren't working (although they don't look blown) and the door handle isn't working (have to use the key in it). Which potentially all fits in with dodgy loom by the door opening.

Re: Rear Wiper Acting Up

Hi

I've ordered this off a well known internet auction site. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Cable-Loo...72.m2749.l2649

I've got my local man ready to do the installation.

I'll let you know how it goes.....

This was the wiring at the tailgate hinge...

All fixed now apart from the door handle, which I've got a new one coming via well known Internet auction site.
