Hi guys,

I have had this unusual issue occur with me 3 times within a 3 year time period of owning my SV6 so far.

For no apparent reason, when driving in rainy conditions, it seems as though I can't turn off my wipers when it stops raining, the only way I have managed to stop them is pull out the wiper fuse while driving.

The first time it occurred, it seemed to have fixed itself after a couple of hours, second time it happened it was fixed after 2 days, but now it has been occurring for the past 4 hours and has not been fixed yet.

I have replaced the wiper stalk with 2 other different stalks, but made no difference.

Anybody seem to know what is causing this weird issue?????

First things first- swap the wiper relay under the bonnet with one of the others and see if that solves it.

Ok, I will try, but so far it has automatically started working fine again, I would have no idea when it can occur.

Mate! Stop using the wipers when indicating at intersections.


Yep. Glad to be of help.
