Megane trouble!

Hi, I recently purchased a 2002reg megane and am having some trouble with it. First off the intermittent setting doesn't work at all or does speed one so the only time the front wipers work is when I have the stalk on full (speed2) I was told it was the wiper motor so purchased a new one from Renault and that didnt work so then I purchased a new wiper control stalk and that didnt work. Has any one else come across this problem and how did you resolve it?

Hello and welcome to the forum.

There are known issues with poor earth connections to the wipermotor,so a question for you first I'm afraid.Does the wipermotor respond properly if the heater fan is switched on?.

If the answer is yes,then it is an earth problem and you'll have to either find the earth connection block in one of the front interior footwells or run a seperate earth from the motor to the body.

If the answer is no,then it could be a UCH fault.It might be worth disconnecting the unit for a period of time and then refitting it to see if that makes any difference first.Have you had any other electrical issues with the car?.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....

Thank you for the welcome and reply to my problem No regardless of the heater been on or off the problem is still there. What exactly is a UCH ? And where can I find the unit to disconnect it? The car is misfiring at the moment sounds like running on 3 cylinders and hardly any power to go, I have ordered 4 new coil packs so hoping that will solve the problem.
