Re: Megane scienic front windsreen wipers wont work

Hello and welcome to the forum

Are sure they are not frozen to the windscreen with this really cold weather we are having? I assume your in the UK?

Have you checked the fuses?

No I wouldn't have thought so as it would be on a totally separate circuit.

Ok so if the fuse is okay then I would check the relay. Donít know about your car? But there may well be more than one relay in the fuse box thatís the same? So you could try swapping it over before going and unnecessarily buying a new one.

Would also check the connection to the front wiper motor. Could also be a faulty switch or wiper motor itself.

Re: Megane scienic front windsreen wipers wont work

There won't be a relay as such,the wipers will be controlled via the UCH control unit.

The first thing to check is to see if power is getting to the motor and then you can work back from there.It's possible that the linkage has come off of the motor,this is something else that needs to be checked.If there is power getting to the motor and it's not working then the motor it's self is suspect and the earth needs to be checked to confirm this.If there is no power then the switch needs checking and then the UCH .

If the UCH turns out to be suspect then sometimes disconnecting the battery for a while will 're-boot' it and it will reset it's self,other times it will need to be replaced which unfortunately isn't cheap and it will also need reprogramming to the car.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
