What causes the intermittent wiper to stop working?

If you make a change in the settings and the wipers don’t react, it’s most likely due to a malfunction in the intermittent wiper relay. This can lead to a potentially unsafe driving situation as sometimes we encounter weather conditions that require the use of the intermittent switch.
