Question about 1991 Volkswagen Fox

1 Answer

The winscreen wipers on my vw polo (51 reg) have started coming on randomly. They then don't turn off until they are good and ready. Embarassing to say the least. What is the likely fault and is it costly?

When you use the washer function of the control arm you also turn on the intermitant wiper function,you need to quickly press the washer setting to switch it off.(bloody clever these VW designers.....)

Automatic transmission fluid vw polo


The dash lights are powered by the battery through the ignition switch via a fuse. Check the electric connections and conditions of the wires.

Change the transmission fluid to solve transmission issues. Original fluid is always preferable as it is specifically designed for the transmission.

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.
