Another electrical gremlin has arisen  :angry:.

 

About a week or so ago it started up okay, I pressed the arm to wet the windscreen to clear it, and whilst the wipers moved nothing came out of the jets. Knowing that there was enough fluid I tried a couple of times and all that happened was the wipers moving and no washers. As I had to be somewhere I drove it for about 10 miles. When I started it up to come home I pressed the arm again, and lo and behold, the washer jets worked.

 

Yesterday the exact same thing happened again. The Washers wouldn't work first time around but happily worked after a 15 mile drive. Bizarre or what  :huh:.

 

So, there's I can't see any obvious fault/fuse/wiring issue, maybe a bad connection on the stalk or at the pump, but I'm now left with an unreliable Washer system which no doubt will chose to mess about at the next MoT :wub:.

On each press of the end of the stalk can you hear the pump running?

May need to have an extra pair of hands or ears for that!

 

I don't know if it's worked fine on the days in between of course!

 

It's just a guess but it could be the little non return valve in the line, leaking back a small amount, so that you almost fill the line the first time, but not quite, depends how long you ran the pump for. And sadly I don't know where that is, not had a shufty on ours yet!

As usual, after doing it twice, its not done it again  B).

 

Seems to be the story nowadays where it does odd things just to worry/p*ss me off. If it weren't so useful, and if there was a similar vehicle with stow and go, it would be traded in :angry:
