It is likely to be the steering column stalk switch. Usually it is the headlights or indicators flickering- there is a very recent topic running.

unless it's a very early pic ( controls like volume on the steering wheel itself ) the rear wiper motor is controlled via the BSI / Comm2000

 

I had this problem a few years ago

never did sort it before the car was scrapped but I'm convinced the solution in the last post about the BSI / Comm2000 is favourite , having eliminated the wiring and motor.

Thanks for the pointer. I think, not that I've touch anything yet....it is the stalk. Is it a easy fix ?
