Front wiper is not working

Post by Flim » Sat Mar 31, 2018 11:16 am

Hi all,

I'm wondering if anybody has had this
Problem.

My front wiper isn't responding to the wiper
Stoke at all. I got it checked out at a garage and the mechanic told me the wiper motor and wiring are
Ok. He assumes there's a problem with the wiper control module or central conveniance unit (whatever that means).

Can anyone shed some light on this? Maybe somebody has had this issue in the past. What should I be paying if it is the problem mentioned above?

I would think that you would need to check the bonnet switch as I think that if the bonnet is not closed, the wipers will not work.

I tried all,with my polo 2010. Mechanic charged 275 pounds without any result. At last told to take to vw dealer to daigonise the fault. Changining wiper motor and switch did not helped. This car does not have mirror sensor. I tried lubricating bonet sensor and also tested by shortening the sensor connector and keeping it open.. Iam not sure this car has any wiper relay. Relay no. 377 which is suppose to be wiper relay, is not fitted in this car.
Can any one help?

So maybe the initial issue is a failure of the convenience unit, maybe called the CCM as it is it that supplies the switching voltage to the wiper motor - as the mechanic suspected?

In this case I think best way to make it direct annd on 2 speed only insted of going through headache of wiering and bcu problums. Making direct is very easy. That is what i decided to do.

So have you rewired the front wipers directly to ignition switched power instead of switching being controlled by the CCM and now everything is working okay?
