Washer jets constantly spraying!

Hello,
Our Punto Grande has developed a problem where the washer jets are on for long periods with no way to turn them off, they seem to have a mind of their own.
Has anybody else seen this? What would you suggest?
Thanks

I don't have a wiring diagram to hand but I'd assume there's a relay somewhere providing power to the pump which sounds like it's sticking

Nope, no relay here, pump signal comes directly from body computer, see end of text (from eLearn)...

Re: Washer jets constantly spraying!

There are a few possible faults:
-1 a short in the wiring between the body and the washer pump;
-2 a short in the wiring between the body an the stalk
-3 defective stalk (that would be my guess)
-4 defective body computer (a possible short /corrosion on it)

You have 3 options (if you want to fix it right):
- get your hand dirty, download eLearn, check the wire diagram, check voltages..etc
- pay a good auto electrician to do it;
- take it to a garage and go down the "replace parts till : a.it's fixed or b.you don't want to put any more money it it" route.


I would get my hand dirty, if that doesn't work i would just create a new circuit for the washer pump... new button in the car +relay;
