Windscreen Wiper problems (New User)


Noticed a problem with my E90 today, whilst having the wiper on auto they just stopped working! They were in the parked position and no matter what i did with the stalk they would just not work!

After turning the car off, checked all the fuses etc, restarted the car and still nothing! By this point i had enough of it and walked away, turned the car on a couple of hours later and all working fine!

Has any body else had this problem and if you have please can point me in the right direction?

I've had this problem on two occasions and had to call BMW Emergency Services out both times. The first time the guy checked the relay and couldn't find a fault, however when he put it all back together it worked fine. The second time (exactly 12 months after the first incident) the guy did what he called a reboot and it worked fine. He advised that it was probably software related and that I should ask for a software update at the next service.

The car is due in within the next month or so, but in the meantime I keep the windcreen coated in rain repellant just in case.

Hope this helps.

EDIT: forgot to add that mine is a December 2010 build.
