SOURCE: why my windscreen wipers on my polo stopping up on the windscreen

Your wiper has what is called a parking circuit, this sets the wipers to the bottom of the windshield when the power or ground is turned off, in order to fix this issue u will need to replace that part, it may be part of the wiper motor, not for sure on VW's.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Hi, the rear windscreen wiper on my 2003 VW polo

The most common reason for this is a blown fuse, so using your vehicle owners book locate and check the fuse first. (if you don't have one then buy a Haynes manual for your car, the cost will pay for itself with the first repair you do). Modern automotive fuses not only have the current rating clearly marked numerically, but are colour coded and the fuses are designed so that you can easily see if they're blown when you pull them out to check. Most modern vehicle fuseboxes have a few spare fuses included and often have a small plastic tool to assist with pulling them out.

Normally a blown fuse needs further investigation as they should only fail if there's been a problem which would otherwise cause fire or other damage, but if wipers are operated inappropriately then it can cause enough load to blow the fuse. Sometimes the wiper spindles can become worn allowing water to get in and corrode the internal parts; this will cause the spindles to bind or even seize up and also cause the wiper motor to draw sufficient current to blow the fuse.

Inappropriate use includes operating the wipers when the screen is dry, trying to use them to clear snow, ice or debris, operating them if the blades or arms are damaged.

If your problem turns out to be more than a straightforward blown fuse then please add a comment to my answer and I'll try to give you more specific advice. If my answer has solved your problem then please return the favour by rating my answer.

Look into changing the ignition switch...sounds odd I know, but we had similar issue and that was the problem.
Good luck!

Intermittent problems with our windscreen wipers - what can it be?


You could have corrosion in your fuse box. Alternatively get a good battery from someone and drive with it in your car for a day or two. It could be that the battery can't handle multiple electronic device at the same time. Go have a look at the VW Polo site perhaps they may have encountered your problem http://volkswagen-polo-highline.blogspot.com

Hi, the rear windscreen wiper on my 2003 VW POLO has just stopped working. Can you help? Cheers Emma. (For some reason it wouldn't let me select polo from the pick list for VW cars.)
