Windscreen wipers not working on x5 E70

Hi I am new to this forum and was just wondering if anyone out there have had or helped solve similar issues

I was driving earlier today and the rain started put my wipers on and after a few cycles the stopped half way and wouldn't move no matter what setting I put it on,

I then later parked up, checked the fuses and all was ok

went back out an hour or so later and they worked.... only for a couple of swoops then stopped again

I would be very much appreciative of any help

Thanks guys

That is a new one I think.
If it were my car I would have it scanned with a BMW specific scanner. BMW specific is important because there are many faults that do not come up on generic fault scanners. It may well end up being the wiper motor that is failing, but never heard of such a thing yet.

I am going to replace the relay tomorrow an if not I will look into getting it scanned.

I have had a price for a new motor and linkage and they are not cheap ;( do hopefully I can either source a used one or fingers crossed it will be the relay

Thank you for your time to help me out
