Following this. Just bought a T350, originally from Morrisons Utilities, and that tops out at 70mph. Pulls beautifully through all the other gears.
Was told it was simply a diagnostic issue that a friendly Ford dealership could fix for £40-50?...

If you don’t want to pay ford to remove them if you pull plug off sensor it turns then into a single intermittent but there is no adjustment the auto headlights are stupid as well mine turned on just as I was coming up to a junction and a car pulled out in front of me thinking I had flashed him out

In the centre of the windscreen at the top behind the plastic trim if it’s the wipers you are asking about :D

Thanks Dumper - tempting, but I actually quite like the auto headlights. Always had them on and have never had to think about turning them on and off since I bought the van. Intermittent is only useful I think if you can adjust the timing. That light drizzle really foxes auto wipers though!

Do you happen to know if there's an always on positive under the rear view mirror panel? Would like to wire a dash cam into it. Ta.

Hi hector mine still got all the taco wireing in it just remove the head unit so mine will have power up there as for the seniors when I first tryed I removed the plug to the right and turned the auto lights off then I pulled the big plug off and it turned both off I didn’t look to see if there was a separate plug for the wipers when it when into ford I re plugged all back in and is still connected so auto lights will work if I set it on the switch and it now has proper intermittent wipers can you not take a feed off the map/ reading lamp mine also turns off the 12 v plugs and usb which is a pain as well as I have fitted two way radios wear the taco and rear light switch panel was I have run power up there from the leisure battery’s I have a feed for a camera when I get round to it
