The wiper blades...

The wiper blades on our ML 350 don’t work until the car has warmed up. After shutting off the engine and restarting they are fine.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the fuses? Do you know if there is power to the wiper motor?

Yes

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Mercedes?

2011 ml350

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your ML350 yourself? What have you tried so far?

The mechanic has checked the motor and the fuses

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

This is definitely temperature related

There is a relay in the trunk fuse box called the circuit 15 relay. This relay can fail causing this issue. That is the first place i would start. I will look over the diagram and get you the location and diagram. Usually when this happens you might not even have power at the cigar lighter or power outlets. Lou

Relay R and N are the biggest culprits, the best test would be to check all the fuses for power with the car running and then let me know which ones dont have power then i can double check the diagram. Lou

I am not with the car right now
No worries. Reply when you can . But usually the issue is the relay or loose/burnt contacts at the back of the fuse box .

Copy and paste that link into your web browser and it will be a file for the read fuse box
Ask Your Own Mercedes Question
Another test is to see which fuses do not have power with the key on with a test light and then i can follow the diagram to see which relay is causing the issue
Ask Your Own Mercedes Question
If you pull up a relay the letter is located under the relay on the fuse block indicating the position
