windshield washer control unit

I have a 2001 Z3 M Coupe. The wipers got a mind of their own and started to sweep intermittently. I pulled the fuses controlling the wipers until I could get to fixing it. When I replaced the fuses the wipers did not work at all. I think that the problem is a relay/control unit. I have searched the internet and the forums but have not had any luck in being able to find information as to where this relay/control unit is located. Does anyone have pictures or directions on how to locate this relay/control unit.

Thanks for the help

You titled the thread washers, but it seems you are asking about the wipers.
The wiper relay is behind the glove box. With the glove box removed, you will see several bundles of wires running into different connectors and relays. The wiper relay is white and light blue. From other threads, it does not sound like the relay causes problems.
