    Hi

    When I press the windscreen washer button on my C180 (W203), the pump runs for about half a second then stops, press it again and it runs as long as I am pressing it, this happens every time I go to use it, anyone come across this behavior before, one thing I have just thought about is the temperature, is it something to do with the heated washers?

    Cheers

    More likely to be a dirty contact in the switch. Perhaps try some switch cleaner sprayed into the end of the stalk?

    The washer heaters come on automatically below 9c (?) and wouldn't have anything to do with the pump running

    Hi Television,

    Did you manage to get your PC up and running yet?

    You were going to send me some mods for the washers.

    Cheers
