The wiper motor runs, but the wipers wont work.

Can you move the wipers by pulling on them? If you can and they easily move, the wiper linkage is disconnected. If you can hear the motor run and the wipers are inoperable, suspect a seized wiper pivot

My windshield wipers wont work.

It Sounds Like, Either The Arms Are Loose ,If You Can Hear Something Moving Behind The Dash,
Or The Linkages Are Seized ,If The Motor Just Hums No Movement Heard,In Which Case Try Spraying Q 20 On The Linkage And Try Moving The Wiper Arms By Hand To Get It Going Again,
If Not The Motor May Just Be Burn;t Out.

Windscreen wipers on my renault clio have stopped working i can hear motor when i turn them on but wipers do not move

If you can hear the wiper motor running but have no wiper movement, it is quite likely the linkage has failed. It will be necessary to gain access to the wiper motor to determine what repairs are necesary

2000 HYUNDAI ACCENT, problem is the Windshield Wiper operation is malfunctioning, in the Delay mode, and in the off position, Windshield Wiper arms/blades stop at the half point on the Windshield glas

The park position is controlled inside the motor/actuator assembly. Not sure if it can be repaired. See if it is assembled with screws versus rivets. A new assembly is less than $100.

Windshield Wiper Motor could be causing starting and stopping where it feels like: REMOVAL & INSTALLATION Fig. 1: Remove the water shield fasteners 91226p14.jpg
Fig. 2: Using a suitable pry tool, lift up the base of the clip while turning the head 91226p13.jpg
Fig. 3: View of water shield retaining clip 91226p15.jpg
Fig. 4: Removal of the water shield weather stripping 91226p16.jpg
Fig. 5: Pull away the water shield 91226p45.jpg
Fig. 6: Remove any dirt and debris from the under the water shield at this time 91226p43.jpg
Fig. 7: Detach the wiper motor wiring harness 91226p48.jpg
Fig. 8: Removing the wiper motor and linkage assembly 91226p39.jpg
Fig. 9: Remove the screws from the wiper motor assembly 91226p40.jpg
When removing the wiper motor, leave the mounting frame in place. If possible, do not remove the wiper drive crank from the motor shaft.
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable and remove the water shield at the base of the windshield.
  2. Disconnect the relay rods from the wiper motor.
  3. Note the position of the crank arm on the shaft. When the motor is in the parked position, the arm should be about 4 degrees up from horizontal.
  4. Disconnect the wiring and remove the bolts to remove the motor from the frame. To install:
  5. Temporarily connect the wiring and run the motor. When the wiper switch is turned OFF, the motor will stop in the parked position.
  6. Install the motor and connect the linkage.
  7. Run the motor again and make sure the arms and blades are properly positioned when the motor stops.
After looking at the schematics, I couldn't determine which subsystem may be causing your problem with the headlights. There is a daytime running lamps subsystem, but I am not sure if that's causing the problem. There are fuses involved but not sure if that's the problem.

There's a solid state headlight switch, but I'm not sure if that's a problem.

On the headlight issue, if it doesn't come back, just consider it a bug or glitch.

Have you had a battery changed on it recently?

My front windscreen wipers have stopped working. The fuse has not blown and after looking on this website I can see it is recommended to run an earth wire from the battery to the motor. Could someone...

Get someone to help you with this problem. First thing you want to check the ground at the motor. To do this get a 16 gauge wire and go from the battery ground to the mounting bolt on the wiper motor,turn on the wiper motor to see if it will come on ,if not then using a test light disconnect the power plug from motor and insert the test light into the plug to see which one of the terminals come up hot. Mark the location and look at the end of wiper motor terminals and place wire from motor terminal to positive side of battery. if you get no movement from the motor then replace the wiper motor. If you do get movement from the wiper motor then you have a short /disconnected wire from wiper switch to plug. Go back and inspect wireing from switch to the wiper motor plug. Hope this will help you.

Head light wiper does not work

These motors break all the time, and they are expensive to replace. Most people just unplug the motor that is affected, and loosen the wiper arm to reset it to a 'rest' position. After that it all looks normal
