Re: why my windscreen wipers on my polo stopping up on...
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.

Need only adjustment.Open again the plastic covers to rich the viper blade mechanism then loose the nut of the motor and make it in 180degreace.Before that make sure that viper blades are again in the middle of the windscreen.Thats not easy but you can do it.Never happening from first time.
motor for wipers is usually in the centre of windshield mounted on outer firewall in the engine compartment just below the windshield...If your are talking about your Tachometer it could be a cable that hooks into engine..... ask your local Hyundai dealer re this
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.
It sounds like the the circuit board has gone bad and does not know where the base is any more so it will stop at the middle or the windshield. Auto Zone should have a new board if it's replaceable like the GM products. Good luck and hope this helps, In the mean time you can always turn your wipers on and pull the fuse out when it's at the down position so it's not up.
