sorry its 2008 S-max

Hi there thanks for that
Ok the s- Max wiper setup is quite complex as it is controlled by two separate motors and there is no wiper linkage present
The first thing to try With this issue is to disconnect the battery back sounder alarm
That is located on the front passenger side wheel arch behind the liner the multi plug Is prone for moisture ingress which can cause the wipers to activate as the LIN bus signal is affected
This must be the first test before we go any further with the diagnosis
If you need anymore help or advice on this issue please let me know
