I just got in from driving down from Manchester to London in the most appalling conditions I have ever driven in. Twice during the trip, whilst pouring down, my wipers stopped working, completely, on every setting!!!! I had to frantically pull over on the hard shoulder, don't ask me how I did that, turn my car's ignition on and off a couple of times before they started working again.
N.B.: When they are working they work fine, i.e. full wipes, auto-wipe, fast wipe, etc.
Is there a control box/module that controls the operation of the wipers?
Am I right that there is a power cut off somewhere?
