    Zafira electrical gremlins are haunting me !!!!

    Hi peeps , am after some advice on a zaffy 1.8 elegance 2001

    went to start the other day and have ignition lights but wouldnt start but started fine with a jump start

    Have noticed a couple of days ago when the head lights are turned on the rear demister lights up and cant be turned off , when the lights are off you can turn it on and off

    Thought it could be picking up a feed from one or the other but now noticed the rear wiper will not work although you can hear the relay clicking

    started with a jump again today as it wouldnt start shut it off after a 14 mile trip and left it for a couple of hours and started sluggish , output from alt i read at 14v

    turned the key off and the bloody thing kept running aswell !!!!

    any help would be appriciated as im tearing my hair out with it

    many thanks steve

    Welcome Steve

    For the starting issues you might just have a dead battery as it sounds like it's getting a good enough charge.

    The only other thing it could be may be relayed to your other problems as I suspect the wires are breaking where they pass into the tailgate which could be making your boot light stay on, stopping the wiper from working and shorting the lights and heated rear window out
