Inspect and test the windshield wiper relay, wiper and washer switch, general module and the washer pump

If you are trying to troubleshoot without a repair manual you are not going to make it. there are other things involved with the windshield wiper electrical system other than what I gave you. lacking the electrical experience, my advice is to bring it in.

You can download it here. link:http://www.2carpros.com/kpages/auto_repair_manuals_alldata.htm

Wipers just stopped working
Six cylinder four wheel drive automatic 350 miles.

I have just bought this car and the wipers just stopped working and they would not start again. I checked the fuses and they are intact. Please if you could give me a clue what could be wrong I would appreciate it. Thank you.

Call BMW assist and have the vehicle towed to the dealer. Your warranty does not need to be voided by having unauthorized repairs performed.

The wipers are controlled by the general module. It will require scanning for faults to guide the repair procedure.
