Wiring issue
« on: 16:03, Mon 31 October 2011 »
MOT time is near so i thought i would swap out my washer jets for some that actually work. No problem there until i pressed the rear washer. Pressing this switch caused all my dials to die.

I checked the fuses and the one marked "STOP" had blown. What is this fuse for and why would this happen? Oh and my rear washer does not work. any common problems that i can check?

Also..will it fail the MOT for not having a working rear washer?

your best bet is to chase the wiring back to the live and earth points,and as for the m.o.t remove the wiper if it does not work

Does the motor for the rear washer whirr away? Sounds like you have a wiring problem somewhere.

If it does whirr it might just be blocked, mine was full of gunk.

The fuse you mentioned is for the reversing light aswell, also check fuse number 4 wich is for rear screen wiper and washer
