There is a 7.5amp fuse brown coloured in the fuse box under the steering wheel its in the top row and to the right this fuse blows when the washer pump is over worked but when it blows it causes the dash lights to malfunction and also the problem where you have to rev the engine to get the wipers, indicators.etc to work changing the fuse solves the problem.

I have same problem. Windscreen, heater and indicators don’t work until you get up to 3000 revs, then a battery light flickers and alls back to normal.

Fuses far as I can tell are fine, not sure?

My 2001 Berlingo Multispace developed 3 faults
wipers, indicaters,and heater all packed up at the same
time. In the morning the battery was dead, nothing.
Is this related to the icy weather ? Everything else
is working. Battery now on charge, might it reset it's
self. Battery is good but was slowing with the freeze.
Any help, has this happened to anyone else ? PETE

I Have a berlingo, the passenger rear light along with the number plate light decide to work when they feel like it.

I have noticed that lights on the 3 heater/fan speed dials go out at the same time.

They usualy work when i start the van, then go out a few second after

Can anyone HELP !!

Same happened to me, told that i needed a new cpu, at a full cost of €1300 all in. Ha, boiled down to a single 5 amp fuse (€0.45 each), which we found out ourselves, after the local dealer was not able to find and correct the problem. (but charged us all the same)
Switch on the engine, rev up to 3000rpm all systems should work again, if so check fuse number F27 (screen washer water motor), this could be the cause. If it is, keep a supply of them, much cheeper than a new cpu! Then just to check, engine off, remove the fuse, restart engine, if old problems come back, this is my answer.

Ian is right ...I ran into same problem with a cadillac and called tech line and thats what they told me and it worked !

Find it fit is the main control Relay which controls ancillary functions is an ECU in effect...learn that this is what these Manufacturers are trying to do ..blind you with Science and create expensive Headaches..that will cost you..Where previously there was none.....

Found out what it was, the CPU had stopped working. Solution was disconnect the battery and connect both cables together (+to-), this will drain the CPU, leave them connected for about 10 minutes. Then reconnect the battery, the CPU should then go back to the factory preset and all your electrics should be working.
