THE turn signals and the wipers are wired wrong. The signal stays on when the wipers should. I remembered a knob on the orange car but none here just the rt stalk turns and wipe function 1971 1602 touring

The wiper function on a 72 is activated by pressing "in towards the steering column". The speed is controlled by a knob on the dash.

By saying the turn signals stay on, do they stay "on blinking" or stay "on constant"? The car is designed that if the turn signal is "on" and you shut the car off, the signal lights, both front and rear, will remain on in a constant state.

The 72 and 73 US cars (and presumably all the Euro ones) use the turn signal lever to illuminate side parking lights when the ignition is off. Many European countries require cars parked on the street at night to have lights fore and aft illuminated on the car's outer side. The turn signal will turn on the front parking light and rear tail light (not the much brighter turn signals) only on the side which is selected by the turn signal lever (left or right). The car's battery is strong enough for these lights to stay on all night without running the battery down.

Think that's what is happening on your car--must not be a requirement in the Netherlands.
