this i think relates to the alarm system you need to go to a main dealer to resolve this one

Dealer wants to replace one or both motors - booked in Friday. Currently drivers side only working , passenger side goes to and stays in vertical position.No fault showing on system. Extended warranty still has a month to run.

I too have the same problem. This occurred after the dealer fitted a new fuse box to fix an engine cutting out problem. Ever since then the wipers have behaved oddly, with the left one parking upright. The dealer says its coincidence, and I need either one or two wiper motors! Am I being led up a garden path here? The car is 4 years old with 74,000 miles. What was the outcome of your problem Ajpeden? Appreciate some guidance here. Many thanks, Chris.
