    Hi

    I have a BMW 320d Touring E91 2007

    My problem is the front windscreen wipers are on permanently even when the ignition is off ,key removed and car locked.


    I have already tried the following;

    Swapped the wiper relay behind the glovebox

    Disconnected the battery for 15 minutes

    Unplugged the rain sensor


    Any help appreciated .I'm no car expert so please explain in plain English any solutions you may offer.

    Thanks in advance

    I'm beginning to think it may be the wiper control column or stick.I don't want to change it without being sure ,does anyone have any idea how I can test this?

    The reason I am thinking it's the control column is that the wipers only work at one speed and do not increase speed with when flicking the column upwards.

    Does anyone have instruction for changing the wiper control column/stick?

    Thanks

    Has something similar on a ford galaxy which was water getting into the wiper motor. However it stopped when the ignition was off (eventually wore grooves in my windscreen :( )

    Thanks ,I don't think it's that as it's been dry for a while and the motor seems to be well covered ,thanks for the response

    Solved

    I bit the bullet and went to BMW, turns out in was the front control box and fuse box.

    I have previously had the front windscreen replaced and unfortunately they did not properly seal the bottom corner above the glove box,water seeped in and caused damage to the
    front electronic control box and fuse box.
    Cost to replace both €1,167 (I'm in France)

    So now I will be writing to the company who replaced the windscreen in the hope of recovering some of the cost
