Re: renault clio electrical problem

As far as I know, the early mk2 like yours has a relay fitted to the uch behind the fusebox on the dash.
By rights it shouldn't be putting a feed to the rear screen until the button is pressed.
The relay could be stuck or the button faulty meaning it's giving a live as soon as ignition is on.
That doesn't really explain why it's blowing the fuse unless you also have a short in the wire to the screen as well.
Not sure if the circuit goes from fuse to relay or other way round.
It would be worth unpluging the relay in the first instance and seeing if it still blows the fuse.

Might be able to piont out the relay if you can pull down the uch and post a picture of the relays on it.

does the fuse to the heated rear window also feed wash bottle motors and rear wiper unit as these also are not working, and have checked for supply at wash bottle motor in engine bay using a multimeter and no voltage is present when wash switch is operated, all other fuses are ok only the one marked as heated window is blowing?

Re: renault clio electrical problem

Welcome to the wonderful world of Renault wiring.
"Spare wire here boss"
"Yeah, just stick it in with any other you can find"

There are variations but yes, the rear wiper/washers might be on the same circuit.
There might be a live to one of it's wires once ignition is on. Probably for the ' park ' position.

Have you had a look in the rubber boots between the roof and tailgate. Wires can get snapped and touch.
Also try disconnecting wiper motor
