If you push down the mist function works correctly. I have checked the fuses but do not know if a bad relay would cause this issue. All speeds except high work. Has anyone come across this problem? Please help!
These are symptoms of your speedometer not working. When the car is at full stop, low speed will be intermittent an high will be low. Replace the rear ABS sensors (they are you car's speed sensors) and that should solve your problem. Since the speed is 0 MPH your wipers work accordingly.
