Re: Fiat doblo wiper problem

Hi.
My Doblo has this problem too, although I haven't yet looked at it in depth, mine seems to be the stalk switch though and fiddling with it resumes operation. I think there is a relay imbedded in the stalk which is possibly the fault.

Re: Fiat doblo wiper problem

Column stalks can be a bit dodgy, headlights going out have also been reported before. Suggest a good squirt of contact cleaner on the stalk switch under the cover as a first step.

Re: Fiat doblo wiper problem

Hi.
Four hours later I am none the wiser! I have had the stalk switch out and managed to dismantle it, no easy task I must say but in my car the switch is 100% OK.
It is looking like a body computer fault, as I think the control of the wiper motor is done in there but again I don't have circuit diagram of the body computer so I may be off track.
I wonder does anyone have a circuit diagram (schematic) of the body computer?

Re: Fiat doblo wiper problem

wouldn't it be easier to see if the supplie(s) were getting lost at the wiper motor itself?

Indeed they do, the wipers work fine when the car is cold then they get intermittent and eventually nothing at all until you switch off the ignition for a few minutes and they they work for a short while

Re: Fiat doblo wiper problem

Hi.
The fault in my case is definitely the wiper switch I "borrowed" one today and it was a total cure. I am getting one tomorrow, and will fit it rather than hanging in a loan switch.

I don't really see why the switch is duff as everything reads ok but you live and learn

Re: Fiat doblo wiper problem

Hi.
Fitted a new (s/h) switch and this has cured the fault. I pulled the old switch to bits again and for the life of me cannot see what's wrong! There is a relay buried in the stalk though so this may be the trouble.
I also got an other instrument cluster a bit upmarket from mine but all that works is the seatbelt warning, its either duff or not compatible.
