Hello guys I have a 2004 525i bmw and when i turn my windshield wipers on they’ll be fine for a while and all of a sudden they’ll just stop in the up position for a while, sometimes a very long time and go back down later. Anyone else had this problem before or know anything as far as why its doing this or what to i need to get fixed or replaced please let me know, id really appreciate it! Its very dangerous to for this to be happening in the rain, especially heavy rain.

Best case is a bad wiper relay but I doubt it based on the symptoms. Chances are it's either binding linkage or a bad motor so I would check the linkage first. Unfortunately, the linkage and motor assembly is really expensive so if it's that, you may need to go with a used one or, if the linkage is the problem, try to replace the pivot bearings yourself.
