Default Electrical gremlins

Hi ,
We hav a problem with our 207 hdi pug.
When we take the keys out of the ignition and wait a short while say 20 or 30 seconds the headlights come on as well as the wipers (at the same time !!
If I'm in the car and turn the light stalk on then off the lights turn off and the wipers stop. Or if I open the door they will stop. Or I can lock or unlock on the fob and they stop !!!
It happens whether the car is locked or unlocked the prob still happens !! Then theywillstart off again maybe another 30 secs later !!
I'm at a bit of a loss at the mo as wen we park we have to disconnect the battery !!
Does anyone have any ideas ??
Cheers
Mart

Check your fuse box for water ingress first.
Over Christmas I woke up one morning and my Peugeot 207 was dead with the window wipers up and a clicking noise coming from the bonnet! | RoadTestReports.co.uk

Default Part 2

Well my electrical gremlins are still with me !!
With lots of searching and no obvious faults visible I opted to send the bsi unit off to bba reman
They tested it and found no faults :-(
Only other thing I can think of now is could the comms unit be playing up ?? Any further ideas folks ??
Thanks

How old is your battery and are the bodywork earth points in good condition?

Been cleaning the earth points wot I can see under the bonnet the couple I've found in the car are clean and dry

Thanks

Depends whats up with it. Dealer guided diagnostic on diagbox would diagnose that easy enough. All in all up to you if you want to go to dealer or not.

Well the lights and wipers come on on their own accord when the ignitions off !
It's not the bsi as this has been checked by bba reman
Thanks

You say you had the bsi tested what did you test the internal bsi or the underbonnet fusebox bsm as some people get confuddled

Underbonnet fusebox/bsm could be the cause.

Saying that I agree it sounds more like the comms unit they do all sorts of silly things when faulty
