    Default electric gremlins

    Ive just noticed that when i use the wash jets at the rear, the fronts squirt water too, they have never done this before. Ive stopped the engine and tried again 10 mins later and now the fronts foam a little but dont squirt, unless i use the fronts.

    Any ideas?

    Ive also disconnected the heated front jets to test they are getting voltage, they did for 2 secs then nothing atall, ive checked the fuses next to the battery and found that fuse 8 had blown (10A). But fuse 8 is listed as headlights in my handbook and nothing to do with the heated screen, since replacing the fuse, i can hear a tiny click at the rear of the car when i switch the heated screen on/off

    could this just be down to the cold weather causing problems ?

    weird shouldnt be down to the cold weather as the heated rear screen is designed to de-mist and de-frost so temp shouldnt be a problem. but possibly u may have faulty elements. as 4 the washers that sound kinda cool that u can clean both windows at the same time lol

    After fitting a new fuse, the wipers seem fine, cant understand why they should be connected to the No8 fuse though

    also the heated mirrors get way to hot, ended up with a blister on my finger from touching the mirror when it had been on for 10 mins
