MY MERCEDES HAS DEVELOPED A PROBLEM AFTER THE RECENT HEAVY RAIN. WHEN THE CAR IS LOCKED, KEY OUT THE HEAD LIGHT WASHER COMES ON AND EMPTIES THE WASHER RESERVOIR. TO STOP THE PUMP WORKING I HAVE TO DISCONNECT BATTERY.

CAN ANYONE ADVISE OR KNOW WHICH FUSE TO REMOVE TO HALT THIS PROBLEM.
 
HELLO , AND WELCOME ! , YOU DON'T HAVE TO SHOUT , WE CAN HEAR YOU FROM HERE. :D

The age of the car and the mention of heavy rain could point to the notorious alarm sounder that fails.

It sound odd (pun intended) I know, but this little device has its own batteries and is designed to sound even when the thief disconnects the car battery.

When it goes rotten it short circuits and can cause all sorts of weird and (not so) wonderful problems.

The good thing is it's easy and completely free to eliminate it from your fault finding. simply locate it and un plug it. it is located behind the wheel arch liner left hand front wheel (RHD car) .
