Question about 2006 Volkswagen Touareg

Open Question

Front window wipers stop working

This has happened a few times over the last 6 months. It blew the 30 amp fuse one time but the fuse is ok this time. It is the rain sensor type. I'm thinking it could be a relay but don't know where to find it or identify it.

SOURCE: location of front wiper motor relay and code

The rear wiper is on "off" position when you pull the "stick".
The relays are under the steering wheel. if you bend yourself down to the pedals, look up, ant there is a litle door, fixed with some nuts. remove them, pull the plastic just to look inside, and you'll see the relays. the relay that control the wiper system is the bigger one. is one relay for front and back. You could open it and you'll see two electromagnets which controls some contacts. you could try clean them with a soft and clean cloth(tissue). Also check the fuses. The fuses are located on the side panel trim from the driver's door. The fuses for front and back wiper sistem are separated. On the back of the panel from the fuses you'll see a diagram with what each fuse does.Good luck.

SOURCE: I need to change the fuse for my wiper blades for a 2001 eurovan

if you can use a test light or vom, you can check them easily to see which one is blown. VOM is best you can test them while keys is off for continuity. Hope this helps you.

98 Dodge Caravan keeps blowing the wiper fuse. Works for a few seconds then blows.


check for bare wires grounding out , wiper motor failure or wiper shafts seizing up and overloading the motor
using a bigger fuse will only result in the wiring harness burning out and possible fire in the car

My turn signals, windshield wipers and rear window defroster stopped working all at the same time. The fuse and multi-function switch are both fine.


Check all fuses with test light or multimeter. I tend to agree with you that it is probably a fuse. Not knowing of any "hidden" fuses or in-line fuses on that system. But sometimes other fuses that are not labeled as wiper or turn signal might be used for power also. So, check all fuses including the ones under the hood.

I am sure the people who did the engine unplugged some connections and did not put them back when they finished.Check the wiper connection in plenum chamber and indicator conectors juct behind the front valance. If those are OK then check your fuses.

I have a 2004 Chevy Cavalier. A couple of months ago, just after starting the car one day, the 'check engine' and 'trac off' lights both came on. I immediately shut off the car, waited approximately 5...


Many cars have the cooling fan on a thermostat or time delay, to allow it to run for a short period of time after the engine turns off, to cool the engine off. You may have just never noticed it before. So I wouldn't worry about that.
Your real problem is the blowing fuses, apparently you have a short somewhere in your wiring. Putting in bigger and bigger fuses is a great way to set fire to your wiring harness. It's possible that the wire is pinched or chafed somewhere, and perhaps when you hit a bump just right, it touches and shorts.
You may have to take this to the Chevy dealer or a GOOD independent shop to have them chase it down. Unless someone out there knows exactly what this is, it could be a tough one to find.
