VW golf Window washer not working

When I test the power on the disconnected wires of the window washer there is a 12V reading. Pump is working when I connect it directly on the battery, but not when connected to the normal wires.

    This is a older model Golf. I think it is a 1994 model. Do you know where the main module is situated?

You may have a problem with the communication link from main module(electrics) to the wiper motor or the wiper motor could be a culprit. Also make sure that the wiper motor fuse is good. It needs to be scanned for code to make sure there is a communication link.

If it is not a problem with the fuses then the window wiper motor may have given up. It should be very easy to find one from a scrap yard (cheap as well) and they are easy to replace as long as you have a couple of spanners.

Make sure you check that the fuses haven't blown first!

Hope this helps a bit, let me know if you need any further info.

SOURCE: Rear Window Switch Problem with Mk3 VW Golf 1.9TD

i had the same problem. After checking the window motor was not the problem i then checked the wiring harnes in the door. I beeped out all the connectors to make sure there were no broken wires and cleaned up all the contacts. The main connector looked quite corroded. I sprayed all the connectors with rust check and reassembled. The window is working fine now

SOURCE: VW Polo 2000 1.4 16V Blowing fuse for Central locking / windows

car electrics are a nightmare. the car lights up when a door is open i presume. and by bypassing the central locking. the electric computer says there is a fault. and will not start. that i think is programed in. best thing to do is. go to phone VW dealer ask about diagnostic test without repair. about £35 then fix it yourself. they garentee it right I think. the dealers have come into line better with that kind of thing phone and ask anyway.

did you check the fuses? is the battery voltage over 12volts? did you check something else for power with the same ground you used for the fuel pump test?

Nissan Terrano 2(mistral 1998) can not locate where rear window washer pump is located as it is not operational when switch is activated


It does not have a separate pump, it has a valve very near to the main washer pump which is activated electrically. This valve will most likely be crudded up as it gets used the least. Trace the pump lines to this valve, disconnect the output line from the valve leading to the rear, test the system by trying to activate the rear washer, check for water pumping out, if none, blowthe valve out with air, test with 12v and if necessary replace it. Blow out the lines leading to the rear squirter, too just in case the lines are crudded up, check the rear jet for the same reason.
it's a matter of checking one step after the other until you locate the problem....

2000 VW golf horn won't work, fuse is good , relay 53 is good but changed it anyway. No voltage reading at horns. Tested horn off car and it is fine


Did you check the power to the relay? and then the signal wire (ground) at the relay to see if it's being signaled? Otherwise you may have a clockspring or module problem not allowing the signal to pass through to the relay.

1992 VW Cabriolet convertible power windows will not go down.


There is an easy way to determine whether this is the switch or the motor itself. Remove the door panel and locate the wiring that goes to the window motor. Disconnect the wiring harness and apply 12V to the terminals on the motor. If it moves smoothly, the problem is most likely the switch or possibly a relay. If the motor does not move with 12V applied to the terminals, then the motor itself is defective.

I have a ford windstar 2003, the power windows some times work. When a try open the driver's window there is a rely sound baut nothing happen. If i try to open the passanger or rear windows only...


I'd take the inner door panel off, and disconnect the two heavy wires that feed the window motor. Put a digital multi-meter positive lead on one wire, and the negative on the other wire, and press the button to put the window down (you'll have to have the main switch control plugged in to test this). You should see your meter read +12v or so when you push the button one way, and -12V when you push the button the other way. If you are getting power (consistently) then your motor may be bad, or the window regulator needs greased.

Windshield washer stopped working , I think the pump motor is dead, but I do not know how/what is involved in replacing it, or to at least check for 12V at the pump itself, as I can not see the washer...


The washer pump has 12v constant when the key is on. The washer works on a ground, when you pull the
switch it grounds the pump to complete the circuit.
To test for power, locate the green wire that go's down to the pump. With a test light check it for 12v+.
If there's no power, check fuse #25 a 20amp fuse in the fuse block. If you have power, locate the wht/grn
wire to the pump. Clip the test light wire to a pos+
contact and have somone pull the washer switch and
use the probe end of the test light to check the
wht/grn wire if it lights, you have power and ground.
may have to access the washer bottle and pump
from under the car. Hope this helps.
