I'm suspecting I have a relay issue with the intermittent wipers as all other settings work. Swithing to intermitent, it wipes once and then does nothing, so...

 

Ddoes anyone know where the relay is for the intermittent windscreen wipers on a 54 plate 2.4 auto?  The manual doesn't list its where about's with the other relays and fuses.

Where does the manual list it then ?

 

Not having a 2.4, I would hazard a guess it is something to do with the rotary bits on the stalk leading down to the steering column.

The manual doesn’t list it, hence the post.

I’m trying to locate the relay. It’s not in either of the fuseboxes.

Autodata does not list a relay for the intermittent wipers.  The closest I can find is an Accessory Relay !

Hmmm. It has to be controlled by something to make them work. I think I’ll have to pose the question to the Honda dealership and see what comes up.

Are you running these when it’s dry? If so I suspect you have rain sensors which are restricting the wipers to run with it not detecting water. Try hosing the car down whilst it’s on that setting

I live in Norfolk. It’s pissing down.

All I want to know is where the relay is that controls the intermittent wiper action.

I pulled that apart this afternoon, and I can see it nowhere in there either. 

 

Reading elsewhere, it's been mentioned there is no relay but is part of an "Integrated Control Unit".  I'm guessing they're meaning the wiper stalk on the steering column.

 

Further investigation ensues.

This is quite a bit more useful, not least for my issue but very good for the whole vehicle;
