Merc S320 cdi 2004. when wiper turned on airbag light comes

Customer Question

merc S320 cdi 2004. when wiper turned on airbag light comes on and wipers do not work. Is this a relay problem? Was intermittent but now seems permanent.

There have been times when leaving the wiper switch on that the wipers  would come on after 3-4 minutes driving in light rain. The airbag light would then be off.

I'm Shantal and I'm a moderator for this topic.
I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.
I was checking to see if you had already found your answer or if you still need assistance from one of the Professionals.
Please let me know if you wish to continue waiting or if you would like for us to close your question?
Thank you,

I am not sure what other information I can give you. As yet I have not received any advice. I can confirm the following:
1.Turning ignition switch to point 2 switches on all consumers.
2. Turning wiper switch to 1 or 11 the warning light for front passenger airbag comes on. The wipers do not work. On the stick end the wiper does not work for a single sweep on pressing the end of the stick arm nor does the windscreen wash work.
3. With the engine running the same response as 2. above except in the past the wipers have come on intermittently in rain but not immediately. This does not happen now.

Are you going to respond to my post of 29th August or are we to cancel the enquiry?

Thank you for your patience,

It seems as though you are not able to help so as you suggest we may as well close the enquiry. I presume you will organise a credit for the charge you have made to my credit card account. Thank you.
