Strange wiper problem - Defender 110

Hello,

I have a really strange windscreen wiper problem on my Defender 110
(1992 - 200tdi).

Occasionaly and intermittently, the front wipers will just come on,
they do it in only the following circumstances:-

1) I flash the main beam headlights.
2) I use the left hand indicator.
3) With headlights on, they occasionally start up.

has anyone had a similar problem? It doesn't happen all the time and
sometimes goes for a while without doing it?

Could it be a bad earth in one of the above mentioned circuits?

All help gratefully received.

Matt

We've certainly got one........... just how much it would be
to send to Oz I'll have to check on (if it can go letter post
it's reasonable - about 2/3 weeks, any more and it gets dammed
expensive with 10/12 weeks delivery!)

We don't officially export outside the EU, but Oz is ok for
small stuff. We don't do the US (can't afford the insurance
for their rather over-keen legal system...) or places with
dodgy finacial reputations.

XPB101290 Def Horn/Indicator/Dip Switch from VA to Td5 54.00 NO VAT

or Genuine Parts

100 NO VAT (Seriously!)

We can do Air Mail to Oz up to 2Kg (which would be 13.50),
the switch come in at 0.55Kg (with packaging) which would be
6.00).

So its 60.00 for the switch (or for lottery winners 106.00)
to those in Oz.

Over 2Kg things get very slow and expensive (8 weeks delivery),
so I won't bother going down that route.
