    Hi all this is my fisrt post so sorry if this has already been asked.

    I have owned my car for a year and a half and after around six months the wipers would just stop on their own (randomly on the windscreen) and could stop for 10 mins at a time and this could last a few days then they would work fine. I have notice when the wipers stop working so does the windscreen and headlight washers.

    I have changed the relay, wiper stalk and motor...I haven't changed the rain sensor yet.

    Also the other day my reversing sensor bleeping sound has started to sound continually when not in reverse and has stayed on constantly. I have also got my drivers side motor blowing the fuse.

    I have tried pulling the fuse out for the reverse sensors but that has not stopped the sound.

    I have taken it to an auto electrician who thinks it may be water getting onto the ecu and causing these issues. I have'nt noticed my car being wet inside before and it doesn't smell damp.

    Any advice would be appreciated.....Also does anyone have any information on where the ECU(or some controlling device) is located in the car...I assume behind the dash somewhere so I can possibly check over the weekend to see if it is damp.

    Many thanks Dave
