Hi graham

I would suggest a grounding fault first.

But first of all, check ALL the lamps are working (indicator, brake etc)

If you are going to clean up the grounding points, disconnect the negative (-ve) battery connector first.

If it is the COM2000/COM2002 unit, then its £185 Plus VAT Plus fitting (plus VAT) for a new one.

Replacing the com2000 unit requires the removal of the steering wheel and drivers air bag.

You can pick up old stock com2000s and recon com2000s or have your unit repaired.

There are some people that can repair some of the faulty COM2000 units, try this link for the COM2000 Repair Service - here.



There is a topic here showing the workings of the COM2000 here which has some pictures of the parts breaking up that cause the wipers to come on when you use the indicators.
