    Vehicle : vectra vxr

    Trim : vxr

    Engine : 2.8 v6 turbo

    Year : 2008

    Mileage : 31000

    Default Does the headlight washer work in conjunction with screen washers

    Was giving the vxr its wash this morning and thought I never seen my headlight washers working yet. Do they only work with the headlights on and do they work with the screen washers ? Can't seem to get them to work

    Yes and no.

    The car will order them to squeeze at the same time, but they are still independant.

    First of all, they will work only when your headlights are on. Then they'll squeeze a second time after a few seconds (while your screen washers won't).

    See when you put the windscreen washer on hold it for a few secs as the headlights washer doesn't come on the exact same time as the windscreen its a few secs later.

    The fuse blows every winter, as soon as there is an ice build up it blows it which i quite liked when i had mine. Once a cold spell was over i replaced the fuse.
