    wiper prob's. please help.

    I have an 05 tdi 140 sline quattro.
    The wipers only come on once you move forward and will not work when stationary ie first thing in the morningafter start-up to clear the window. Also the wash wipe has stopped altogether. I have checked the fuses but these are ok. Next I will look at the switch, thought I would ask here to see if any of you guys had any experience of this happening before.

    They only wipe every so many seconds when the cars stood still because there wouldn't be as much rain hitting the windscreen as to if you were moving in the rain.

    Eventualy traced it down to the bonnet micro switch. as this was not quite operating fully, the system was thinking that the bonnet was open and thus not operating the wipers. Not the most obvious source.
