I would be more inclined to think ignition relay Rodger. With the added bonus that if it is the relay it's a nice easy cheap fix.

That wouldn't explain a possible electrical-based misfire though..

Never try and argue with an idiot. They drag you down to their level, then beat you based on experience.

Nor would it explain the fact that after a few restarts, due to the engine stalling at low rpm, the windows/wipers have now started working again, and the engine was running a bit better. :)
I agree, if it was only windows/wipers, the relay would be the prime suspect

Fancy a holiday in Gael, France?

There is no point trying to teach a pig to sing. It doesn't work and it annoys the pig.
