    wiper fault

    my wipers for my 2002 astra sri turbo stoped working i was told by a garrage it was the wiper motor so bought a second hand one when fitted the wipers didnt reset properly stoping in different positions i tried another motor from the same place ( both from a brakers yard ) and these did the same not resetting properly.
    The brakers say its an electrical fault but im not sure does anyone know what causes this as the wipers were fine before the first motor died

    Do they stop in random places, or always at the same point?

    It is common for the motor to fail in this manner, it may be you've been unlucky and had a few dodgy ones.
