Help* Fuse for the Window Washer Motor

Post by Jenni1 » Mon Dec 02, 2019 9:33 am

Any Help appreciated...I have a Volkswagen polo 68 Beats

With the cold frosty weather I thought my water had just frozen but unfortunately not.

I have no sound when trying to get water to my front or rear window when pushing in the button the wipers just move the jets are not blocked.

I am thinking I may have blow the fuse on the Washer Motor but cannot locate the correct fuse for this and I am looking for some help.

I refuse to pay Arnold Clark £25 to look and change this for me when I can do it myself.

Any help greatly appreciated.

Is it in the manual? I'd say you've almost certainly blown that fuse.

There are definitely fuse box diagrams in the manual, I looked to pick a few fuses to tap into for my dashcam. I don't have my manual to hand to check.

Does warranty not cover this?

It shouldn't as it is operator error, but if you are on good terms with your supplying dealership, I'd think that they would change the fuse FOC while not being responsible for doing that.

Edit:- ah, I forgot Uncle Arnie's car emporium - possibly not!

So, OP, if you are able to change fuses, I'd think that you need to get going and find that blown fuse and fit another of the same rating - and adding in some winter washer conc and run the washers at each end to make sure the pipes are clear of plain water.

RUM4NO, not being argumentative but how is it known to be operator error? OP said pump is not making noise and received a reply from a forum member who says (without having inspected the car) that it might be the fuse, might also not be the fuse

From my interpretation of the opening posting, the poster more or less acknowledged that they had been probably running with no or not enough winter washer conc in the washer mix so that does tend to create an issue for the pump, which gets saved by its supply fuse blowing.

Edit:- sorry I missed out the issue only causing trouble in cold winter weather, which there had been at that time. Yes there is an outside chance that there is another reason for this, but until the fuse has been checked and proved to be okay, I'd think that it was just an operator error due to freezing washer fluid.

Hi I have the same problem with my 2018 model. The manual helpfully does not identify the washer motor fuse, only offering to identify a small number of the fuses under the dashboard. Can anyone offer an image of which is which? I note that there have been previous attempts to compile a list.
Thanks

There is a member who was asking members for any information about their fuse boxes, (there is a fuse box under the bonnet) and he compiled a list of the relevant fuses for the Polo.
Look back at the old posts and you will find the post. I can remember the post, but not the persons name.

Try asking at the service desk of your VW Dealership. Someone should tell you the fuse number free of charge.
