Programmable intermittent wipe?

Post by timmaaah » Sun Dec 31, 2017 1:33 am

Hey all - quick question. My 94 Corrado has a programmable wipe whereby you can chose the delay. This is controlled by a relay, I forget which one.

Has anyone tried retrofitting the 'Rado one to relay location 10 on a MK2 Rocco? I see there is a relay 99=front wiper variable here. I do miss the variable wipe when driving the Roco in the rain

Thoughts? Thanks :)

IIRC it's relay 99 and it can be retrofitted

99 is the programmable relay.

Move wiper stalk down to intermediate let the arm wipe the screen then park, move the stalk up to the off position and the wiper arm may swipe the screen wait till you want the time needed between wipes then move the stalk down to intermediate and then you should have the same time between wipes.
When you switch the car off the relay sets back to the standard 7 sec wipe.
