After a recent visit to the garage to fix a different wiper fault, my auto wipers now don't seem to be working properly. I leave my wiper switch in auto position all the time (1 step up) in which case the wipers used to work completely automatically without ANY intervention from me - if it was dry they would not operate and if it started spitting a bit or raining they would automatically come on and clear the screen.
They now no longer work like this. I still leave the switch in position 1 all the time except now when it starts raining the wipers don't come one AT ALL. I can drive until i can no longer see the end of the bonnet and they don't activate - unless i switch the lever off back down to 0 position then back up again - then they resume normal auto operation, ie, alter with speed and rainfall. That is until the next time when they won't work again. I can start a journey and it be dry and it can start to rain mid journey and the wipers just do not come on unless i switch them on and off again - this doesn't sound like auto wipers to me???
Does this sound wrong to anyone - or have i imagined how they 'used to work' completely automatically???
