Auto wipers
#1
This weekend I noticed my auto wipers behaving oddly,  in light rain drizzle they would start of as expected,  just the occasional wipe , but after about 1 minute they would turn full on but at a slow speed, then about 10 seconds later be at full speed....?

Turning them off an on again , they would behave normally,  but then after a minute go manic again..

I've cleaned the glass by the sensor,  but it looked OK, has anyone else had any similar problems and if so what is the advice for fixing it??

Thanks.

Hi
I have a 2018 XTR and my auto wipers behave quite randomly sometimes. As you say turn off and on again cures the issue for a while.

Mine have done that since I bought the car.  I just thought Citroen were being over enthusiastic in keping the screen clean.

It's just rubbish/ poor integration by PSA, their software is absolutely shocking, the radio / display is badly done, not intuitive at all, this wiper issue looks like a poor job, they must sell millions of cars, why not do something good? I guess if they get away with the minimum effort they always will....
