Simultaneous Failure of Heated rear window & heater blower

Thursday, 12 January 2017  |  Mick

Affecting: All Saxo & 106 variants

Seems like a strange thing to occur, but it is pretty common. Saxo's have an inherent fault with the ignition switch that causes both the heater fan and the heated rear window to become inoperative. The best remedy is to replace the switch unit. Under no circumstances attempt to source a feed from any of the other contacts as HRW and fan motor both draw heavily on current which will overload an already overloaded contact. Either that or invest in a fire extinguisher or some quality insurance.
