SOURCE: wipers stay on

Hi,
There are several possible causes, and maybe a fault code scan would help. You did not say whether the intermittent wipe and various speeds work - do they? In the meantime, check that the wiper stalk is in the correct position.
You could also try removing the front wiper relay to see if that stops them - if so get an auto electrician to try a replacement relay before buying it ;-)
and you could try removing the "rear" wiper fuse - yes rear, if your car has rear wipers. Then please let me know if any of these ideas had an effect! Well take it from there.Thanks, D

SOURCE: VW Golf 200. Rear windscreen wiper not working, I

a common problem with the golf hatchback is where the cables run thru from the car to the tailgate they pass thru a rubber boot surround by the hinges. because the bootlid is open and closed many times the wires that control items on the tailgate can break.
take off the rubber boot from one side where it fits to the car and slide it back over the cables that are inside it and if you see some cables are broken that is your problem.rejoin the cables and it should be ok.this is something to check after you know that the switch is ok, it is quite a common problem. hope this helps.

Rear window wiper wont turn off on my vw golf tdi 2OO2 MODEL


Hi,
Looks like the problem is in the wiper mechanism switch.
Located in the base of your wiper, wires are connected in that area, one contact point might have fused itself to return contact point. Check on that and let us know.
You could check also the rear wiper switch, the contact inside might have fused with "on" contact point.
Hope that stops that reckless wiper!
Thanks for using Fixya!

Where is the switch for my 1997 VW Golf rear windsheild wiper? I just bought it and I can't find it...


The switch for the rear wiper is on the actual windshield wiper switch for the front wipers, you have to push the lever forward to turn it on and then again to turn it off, to use the washer fluid for the rear wiper you push the same lever forward and hold it there till the washer fluid comes out.

Were is the back wiper switch located for VW polo's from 1997? mine doesnt seem to be working. Thanks. (I had to select Golf from the products gallery as Polo doesnt seem to be on the drop down menu.)


on the right stalk the tiny button on the end of it clicks in for the rear wiper and push the hole stalk towards the speedo and hold for rear wiper and washer.

Airbag light remains on after changing fuse of rear wiper.VW POLO


This is a common occurance in vw's.
In order to turn off the airbag light you need to have a scan tool hooked up to your car because the airbag detected a fault of some sort, or it could be a faulty component in the airbag system itself.

The rear wiper and washer on my 2005 golf 5 GTI 2.0 FSI stopped working


the most common problem is you havn,t shut the tailgate properlly.you may have it on just the first latch in wich case the rear wiper wont work.give the tailgate a good slam to make sure its shut.
