Hey mate,

Just try unplugging the combo switch and see if they stop?

I'm guessing, but the e series stuff works through earthing gear out...

So there is power at the motor all the time and the combo earths the other side out...

So the combo may be broken, if unplugging the combo stops the wipers the problem lies in the combo, if not the wiring in the car has rubbed through somewhere and is earthing out...

Do XF's have an Int speed? Or just low and high?

Cheers,
Tim

ah... sounds hard then...

On the e series models you only require a relay for the int function... and the relay is inside the body module... there is no physical relay to pull...

So I am unsure on what this separate relay does...

Do X series falcons have a body module to control the Int function? I am completely unsure how the X series system works... I know the E series system fairly well... :? thought they may have been similar but apparently not...
