Arrow Wind screen wiper issue

Hi all,

Iím new to the forum so be gentle.

Iíve got an 07 plate SX4 and the wipers on the front are acting strange.
If I push the stalk upwards they arenít doing a full rotation and are stopping half way so Iím having to hold the stalk up for them to go all the way up and back down to resting.

If I press the stalk down they will do the rotations just fine on there own on any speed.

I have changed the wiper motor, blades, arms, wind screen itself (unrelated issue) and the stalk. Still no joy. The relays seem fine and fuses....

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

YOu mean that the wipers stop at the exact moment you release the "stalk" ?

In case it can help

WHen you stop the motion from HI or LOW speed in the middle of the cycle, does it return normally to park ?....since the completion of cycle and return to park is controlled by the cam switch inside the motor unit, a "no return" condition would not make the difference between "mist" and HI/LO

I thought that and the only thing that would make sense is no ground on 13, but as you say they wouldn't ever park and the washers wouldn't work either. Strange one this
