Wipers Turn On Randomly Wtf.


Recommended Posts

Hi all, I have a series 1.5 r33 gtst and i'm having trouble with the wipers turning on by themselves sometimes only for a couple swipes and sometimes until I turn it off then turn it back on again wait a few seconds then it starts up again??? It done it about a month ago when I was driving and hasn't done it again until recently now its just getting real annoying and embarrassing when people stare at you wondering why you have your wipers screeching away on a perfectly sunny day!!!

Is it an easy diy or better to pay an auto electrician?

Please help!

Hmmm... hear me out.

In my U13 Bluebird, I had a problem with the indicators coming on for no reason and oneday there was a puff of smoke... Made me worried and thought I would need a new indicator stalk. After finding out it was not too expensive to replace, I decided to have a go at fixing it. (If I stuffed it up it wouldn't cost heaps).

I pulled out the stalk and pryed open the little tab dealies to open it and found that in one place a bit of plastic that sat between 2 copper terminals had worn out from all the use and was making the switch terminals touch when they shouldn't. Was also a little melted. Sooooo... I got a cable tie and jammed it in the gap cut it off and super glued it in place. Never had a problem since... I suggest you pull out the wiper stalk, open it up and see what you can see. They seem to be a similar design to the Blubey's. You never know.

Good luck.

    • TCU is enroute, should be here on Monday. Have just paid for a transmission locally, they've got to pull it out of the car and should be with me on Friday. Just getting little bits and pieces I need for wiring. Thinking about using a small bulkhead connector to run the transmission wiring through the tunnel as the trans plug is quite big.  So all going well i should have the box dummy fitted up next weekend and start wiring.
    • sure, just PM me your email....
    • Haha likewise, take my shit box for a spin and maybe you'll end up wanting a R33 shit box again lol...  
    • @Jasoncauser looks like a tight technical track, and definitely fun! Let's hope I make it to that day 😎  
    • The springs just lets the valve bleed off pressure/oil and it bypasses the feed gallery and heads back to where the pickup feed is On the LS the oil gets the the bearings...eventually  This vid explains the OEM pump well IRT the pressure release valve and how the bypass works The oil pressure light coming on intamitantly could just be a sticky valve, but, why pull something apart and not put something better in  I believe the low oil pressure light comes on somewhere between 5-10 psi Well will stick a gauge in after the installation to see what difference it makes at hot idle and higher RPM, and by high RPM I mean 6300 RPM.....LOL
